Default Best bar ends

I'm looking at buying bar ends and frame sliders, but was wondering what is recomended. I know Vortex is highly recomended for frame sliders but haven't seen anything about bar ends. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I bought some super cheap bar ends off of solomotoparts.com
With frame sliders you may want to get some nicer ones. I think the main thing is you get the ones that require you to cut your fairings. The no cut ones don't work very good......allegedly

I plan on getting the Vortex frame sliders(cut out), but does Vortex also make bar ends for a 2001 F4i?

If you want some ones that will cut down on engine vibs. Check out HVMP bar ends. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

If I was putting on new ends I might go this route.


Anyone have any experience with Throttlemeister?

I can't find them now but I just got some factory fit ones off ebay that were made from the same plastic as my sliders. They look awesome, and im sure they will function if needed. Hopefully not ={D}

I'm stock on my bar ends, just painted them from a gray to a gloss black. Looks a little better. The vibration still exists though, I don't think it'll ever go away short of getting new grips.

Frame sliders, Vortex or Woodcraft, no matter who you ask :P
