Lightbulb Clip on Vibration Problem SOLVED!!!

Hey guys first off I'm new to the forum and just picked up my 2014 1199 R couple weeks ago from westside motorsports in spokane wa. I love every bit of it other than the fact that the vibration coming from the clip-ons was killing my hands. So I came up with a solution that I just wanted to share. Custom Lead bar.ends

1: Tack weld a stainless or grade 8 bolt to a steel plate. This will give something strong inside the barend to screw it in and in case of going down the bar end won't break off.

2: Tack weld a pipe around the bolt and fill it will lead, be sure to leave an Allen wrench in the bolt so it doesn't get filled with lead. I used about 6 lbs of lead.

3: Cut it down on the lathe so that you can then hit it with the tap and die kit to thread it.

4: Chuck it one more time to do the final cut and finish, I put the taper at the end and painted them just for looks. I didn't have a scale handy but i'm guessing they weigh around 2 lbs each.

The difference these made is night and day. I didn't even realize how bad the vibration was until it was gone. Instantly reduced vibration by 90%+

I'm just curious (not taking orders yet) would anyone else be interested in a set like these?

Step 1: have a machine shop in your garage.

J/k. Good job dude.

Oh, and congrats on the bike.
Thanks from MightyWhitey

Nice job! Just curios, when you say the vibration was killing your hands what type of pain did you experience?

There's a whole bunch of people on here who would spend a lot of money to shave off 4lbs... not add them
Thanks from AntiHero, Phl, Claymore and 2 others

Cramping, numbness, to the point where I would have to pull over and stretch and rest my hands. Best I can describe it.

Oh and I kinda realized half way through creating this post that not everyone has access to all the tools required to fab these bar ends up but hey this was a complete game changer for me and wanted to share because if someone offered a set of these I would have bought them but couldn't find anything except the universal stainless steal heavy bar ends.

How did you determine what weight and density of material would be needed to eliminate the vibration? Was it just luck that the first set you made happened to be spot on?

Also I'm curious of CF clip ons would eliminate the vibration as well or make it worse or what...

Well I'd be happy to explain the physics. T= r * F Torque = radius * Force and F = m * a Force = mass * acceleration.

In the case of a Panigale force is provided by the resonant frequency of the engine sending the vibrations through the clip-ons. The acceleration is the rate at which the clip-on is accelerating back and forth. The only variable that is adjustable in the equation is the mass. The greater the mass the smaller the acceleration. So my bar ends don't eliminate vibration but they substantially reduced it.

Trust me, I'm an Engineer I only ride sportbikes and tinker in my shop for fun.
Thanks from Phl

Changed my stock bar ends to aluminum and installed Spider grips at the same time. Vibration is not an issue. It is there but is not noticeable or bothersome. I do think the grips have helped this, but it wasn't a problem for me when it was stock.

I didn't notice any increase in vibration when I removed my bar ends.
