I've heard of riders putting lead weights inside the bar ends, but that
might be difficult feeding them through the 6mm screw holes in the end!

Subject: mirrors

While I'm thinking about it, does anyone have a decent solution for 
mirror vibration?  More than once I've wondered what that is slowly 
gaining on me; can't tell if it's got a light bar on top, or just a roof

rack until it's too close to matter.  My mom would tell me to slow down 
and then I don't have to worry, but the vibrations through the mirrors 
are annoying from about 60 - 80 mph.  I recall cutting some rubber 
mounting plates from a thin mouse pad for use on my last bike.  That 
changed the speed at which the vibrations occurred, but didn't get rid 
of them.  Any ideas?  ]

I know there's an excellent product out there  called sorbothane 
<http://www.sorbothane.com/> , used to dampen vibrations in turntables 
and other audio gear, but I've never worked with it.  The mirrors on the

Super III remain crystal clear at all speeds, but they're also a lot 
smaller and tend to just give me a good view of my elbows.  This mirror 
issue may cause my insurance to go up...
