Some people like the HVMP bar ends. Rumor has it they are the heaviest but are large. They have their own website for purchase if you want to check them out.

HVMP should cure the vibes. I don't have much  vibrations on mine at 15k miles. After proper breakin these bikes get smoother ... also what really help are grab-on/emgo/grip puppies overgrips

Several recommendations here and there about using CRG bar end mirror and evotech heavy slotted bar ends. Reduces bar buzz as well as rear view and appearance. I have this setup and am happy. I also use the grip puppies mentioned above. Also may help to make a conscious effort to grip the tank with legs more during hard acceration or any time you find yourself grasping the bars tightly with your hands.

^ I hear you and remind myself occasionally that all bikes have quirks and this one still is the best overall package for my riding needs and wants.  :305:
