Hi all, has anybody ever used a Balance Master kit to reduce vibration on a '03 1200S? I haven't been able to find too much info about the use of this kit on a late model Sportster. I now have bar-end weights and handlebar weights installed, but I still can't get the vibration range high enough to get it out of the cruise speed rpm to make the ride more comfortable at cruise speed (approx. 70 mph). It's a great bike, but the vibes are destroying my wrist and fingers. (being diabetic and having carpal tunnel syndrome doesn't help either). The Balnce Master kit looks like it could help, but I would really like to get more info from someone who has tried it. Thanks

Darrell

Go faster, when I cruise mine at around 80-85 the vibes seem to go away :)

If I recall correctly, this months edition of American Iron Mag, has a 'how-to', install a - with post install results. Never used one, but the install looks easy, and I think the concept is good.

I know i'ts probably not what you want to hear but maybe try an 04/05 bike as they really have got the vibration thing sussed.
