I would assume if your trying to save weight doing all that then this would not be a desired mod for street riding. Then again, if your are a racer then why would you care about a good street ride.

While we're talking bar ends,

I'm building a track bike and keeping the stock clip ons for now but want to put on a brake lever guard. Are there some aftermarket bar ends that will work with the stock clip ons and say a Woodcraft brake lever guard?

I put 1500 1/8" steel ball bearings in each of my Woodcraft 11" clip-ons. It adds 1/2 lb to each bar, but the vibration is significantly reduced. The extra mass makes the bars move less for a given vibration input, and the movement of the ball bearings dissipates energy as heat.

I also use the Pro gel grips.

The vibration we feel is mostly secondary vibration which occurs at twice engine speed. The L twin has perfect primary balance.

The ball bearings are loose. I put them in using a funnel. It's important that they bounce around to dissipate energy. You can't hear them or feel them moving. You can buy them cheap on Ebay. I paid $22 for 3000 of them. They are stainless steel.

Wouldn't like to be behind you if one sh*t itself

Or what if you drop it on a track day? The marshals will love you!

You could potentially cause others problems, not a bad idea by all means. But I am slightly raising an eyebrow
