I've ridden enough now to give a review on the Vibronator tuned-rod bar ends.
First, the website link to the units I purchased - Vibranator 7/8"
The actual bar ends are very heavy, which is good. Installation takes all of 5 minutes, including reading the instructions and removing the previous bar ends.
Advice, tighten them very tight, and once you do, they don't loosen up at all.
Do they reduce hand and arm numbness? This is important to me, because the military injuries that plague me are aggravated by handgrip vibration. In a word, YES. They work. I have yet to get numb hands, or any problems in my arms.
Granted, some of this is due to the handlebar configuration (LSL + risers + Superbike High bar) and some to all the weight I have hung on the handlebar, and some to having heated grips with Grab On Grip Covers also.
But to not have any numbness in my hands is a huge improvement from the buzzy handgrips I've had until now.
Worth every penny, and would probably really quiet down stock clip ons.
