mine vibrates a bit as well, usually a vibe through the pegs at 7-8000 rpm. Although latey after the build i have noticed a bit more vibe from the bars. right hand gets pins n needles. Hollow drag bars with no bar end weights. Might give the lead flashing a try.

Oh sorry...I got a pm from Adders...

For others who'd like to know

The company does CNC machining with Alloy. They charged me £60 to make a mounting bracket which included lots of work modding it to my requirements etc.

They don't charge a lot for stuff like this, they make lots of bike bits inc two piece calipers etc

If anyone has any requests, let me know and we'll get designing

update on this as post went to pms

first off for some reason kwak have made it almost impossible to put any decent weight up the bars , [bars seem hollow but only have very small hole at either end [approx 5mm diam]
secondly the origional kwak bar end weights are pretty heavy as std , although there are heavier/longer end weights if you look around [ebay ect]

only fix i can think of is have some solid stainless bars machined or buy hollow mild steel aftermarket and then fill with flashing

you can feel a lot of vibration coming through the tank is this because it sits on the airbox ? 8)
Would that be a C1 perchance? The exhaust system on the E1 had a mount under the engine to stop vibration. Have your bar ends fallen out? Are there any engine bolts left in place. etc etc.

found a cause of vibes today while looking over the lads zx9 ,
the top rad bolts while tight hadn't taken all the clearance up on the rubber bushing and horn, i think the fairing must of been helping quiten it as it was a lot louder than normal once fairing was off but now it's tight it's miles better

also worth checking that all the rubber inserts on the four tank bolts are fitted correctly
