Somebody here had some inserts or something that fit inside the bars under the hand grips that seemed to help, but I don't remember who it was or what they were called. It was in one of the suspension threads where they were telling of it if I remember correctly.

Certainly could be, I don't remember. I was more interested in the discussion on Road King shocks,, but you know how off topic bits wind up in a thread. Someone mentioned they'd installed them as part of the upgrades on their bike, and someone else asked how they worked, and I just kind of skimmed over because my bikes vibrations were more through the seat than the bars, because the previous owner installed shorter shocks with way too much spring for the weight of a Sporty.

But, I'm glad they're working for you, I'll keep that filed away in case I come up against handlebar vibration.
