I have these installed on my Trophy. I have to admit that, while they do wonders to ease the pain in my hands from trying to hold on to such a small handle, they don't do as much as I had hoped in the realm of vibration isolation. Either way they are great, inexpensive, and relatively easy to install.

This is a surprise to me...vibration? My Trophy is the smoothest bike I've owned to date, and I've owned a lot. Is it possible that you're holding on a bit too tight? Also, if you have risers, you're working against the engineered-in vibration isolation, so this might be a difference?

If the vibration you have is serious enough that you're trying to mitigate it, you might consider a dealer trip to have them make sure there isn't a larger issue.

I have been using them for years and I am very happy with them.

Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

When there is a serious vibration, it may be due to the alternator that has stuck the decoupler that is mounted on the drive gear.

Over time and the use of kilometers, it gets stuck because it creates how an oxide and that oxide dust causes it to snag.

and produces an appreciable vibration in the footrests and cuffs.
