bar end weights on renthal bars

I put some renthal ultra-lows on yesterday, theyre great btw, and I would rather not spend more money new bar end weights. I was thinkning I could throw em on a lathe and stick em in the renthals. Do any of you know if this is feasible/how much of a pain it is and any problems I might run into with this. Im not too worried about messing it up, itll be a good waste of time/learning experience.

Here's an option - I'm running mine without any weights at all and it's stiil worlds better than the vibes thru the stock bars.

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

this is what i did w/ mine. took them to a friends machine shop. had them milled down and bored out to accept a larger bolt. i then used an aluminum expander (i.e. like the crg bar end mirrors insert). and wha-la. stock bar end weights on renthal bar for a total of 15 bucks. i posted in a thread w/ all the measurments and such. just do a search under renthal bars.

good luck

parts411 carries them and i believe most honda dealers do business w/ them...

i also believe that rizoma and renthals have the same inner diameter and you could probably get away w/ rizoma bar ends from PJ (best double check)

I bought a set of Rizoma Bar ends once but didn't use them after I saw how light and small they are. They just looked all wrong on the stock 9er handlebars with stock grips. Sold them on eBay. They look great with the Rizoma grips.. but still.. they are so light. Anyway, I think I am going to get some Rizoma conicals/adapters, grips, bar ends and class mirrors, and try all that gear out. Expensive stuff though.. gonna have to sell some plasma first.

I wonder if the Coherce weights would work? They're only about $15.

both of those are just bar ends, not weights. they are for looks much more than function. although, i guess you could make an argument for them protecting the bars if you dropped the bike.
