Bar-end weights for renthal ultra-lows

Anybody know a site where I could pick up some weights for the ultra-lows to get rid of the vibrations a little more?

I've got a new black set that fits the Renthals perfectly. . .$17 shipped. I was about to put them on Ebay. I don't need them because I mounted Oberon bar end mirrors. Let me know. . .otherwise off to Ebay they go.

The Fasst Company bar weights will not work with the Renthals. The weights are much too long. The Renthals already have a anti-vibration "filler" in the bars, which allow may be 1.5 to 2 inches of allowable room to insert a bar end weight.

Renthal makes bar ends. Several colors. Dennis Kirk sells 'em.

Well that sucks. I guess they need to change their application chart. I saw these in the catalogs at the dealership and thought it was a great idea.


Fasst Part #ABI-200 fits:
- 7/8" Renthal
- Pro-Taper
- Magura
- Renthal Fat Bar
and most aluminum bars with a 13.5mm inside diameter.

Fasst Part #ABITW-300 fits:
- Renthal Twin Wall
- O’Neal Double Wall

If you're set on the Fasst Company bar weights, you can remove the filler. I don't recommend this because the bars were designed with this filler. I'm thinking it was "injected" into the bar, then hardened. It's easily drilled out.

Thanks, but I actually have the Pro Taper ATV Hi on the KLR. I haven't checked w/ a flashlight or anything, but I don't remember seeing a filler when I was trying to fit my handguards.

Just stick a screw driver inside. . .I'm thinking that the off road Pro Tapers (or off road Renthals for that matter) won't have any filler of any kind.

The fasstco's worked perfect on my renthals, but I have to admit that mine were N.O.S. Renthal uses a small red plastic plug inside thier off-road bars, but I have never seen anything inside thier road bars. I'm actually replacing my current renthal "mediums" with some renthal "lows" in the next week or two, so I will let you guys know what I find.

Just bought a new set of black ultra lows on Friday, to replace my suburban bars. The Renthals have a red plug 2 inches from the end of the bar. I am also looking for bar ends.

The fasstco's are a anti-vibration incert and if you get creative you can still use them with a weighted bar end.

If you're looking for serious vibration dampening check out http://www.barsnake.com/, if your just looking to plug the hole take a look at bicycle shops, there are lots of cool billet handlebar end plugs out there for bicycles (all 14mm). My new Renthals should be here friday (knocked the 9er off the work stand, bent the bars) I think I'm going to "borrow" the billet plugs I have on my mountain bike till I decide if I need vibration relief or just a crud plug for the end.

I just mounted up some Rizoma bar end sliders on my Renthal Streetfighter bars and they fit and look perfect! Best bar ends I have ever seen, they tighten up beautifully.

Theres a time when cost & convenience is well worth it.
I believe they were like $19.95, or something like that, vs. me having to do it + the anodize lot charge ($78.00)!?! Nope... I'll but em!

I'm sitting here with my brand new Renthals that brown just delivered and there is indeed a little red plug about two inches in. Anyone know whats behind the plug? I'm dying to start trying to pull the things out just to see.
The Faastco dampers would definatly be too long with the plug installed.
