between the bar-end mirrors and the handguards, there isnt much room left on my handlebars for the usual bar-end weights.

to reduce vibration, i was thinking a bow stabilizer might do the trick. anyone tried strapping one of these bad boys onto the bars?

sure some lead shot would work just fine but a camo stabilizer would be a lot cooler.

that looks like some sort of backwoods "marital aid". I think they sell these on QVC in the afterhours slots. dont ask me how I know.

These are relatively common for touring bicycles and they work great. As long as the right mass and materials are used, I would imagine it would work well for a motorcycle as well.
Out of curiosity, why would a bicycle need a stabilizer to reduce vibrations in the handlebars? Aren't the vibes in m/c handlebars from the engine mostly?

Apparently when your tires are the thickness of rubber bands and your bike has no suspension front and rear and weighs 10 lbs, there's nothing between you and feeling every single little bump in the road. This is also how one justifies buying a carbon fiber frame despite not "racing"- they supposedly damp better.

It won't help the vibration, but you will be able to nail deer at 50 yards.
