Has anyone done anything to reduce the amount of vibration felt through the grips? I don't have excessive or above normal but it does where you out after a while.... Any thoughts?

I mounted the Oberg antivibration inserts. They took all the vibration out of the bars :)

The bolts for the bark busters bolt into the inserts :D I use them with my cycra hand guards. I feel they work really well. :)

I may have some pictures i can post up.:D

I fill my handlebars up with silicone caulk, then scrape out what I need for clearance for barkbusters.

I've heard that filling your handlebars with BBs will stop the vibes. I've never tried it, but it sounds like a cheap and easy fix, if it works.

I've heard some KTM guys actually pour hot lead into their bars to reduce vibrations. :)
