They look nice installed... and I agree the oem bar bend is not the best for me either but I am not sure I want to lay that far forward again.

well between the handlebars and the weird buzzing issue on cold take-off, i need to find a solution or i am going to get rid of it.

The weird buzzing is the clutch. Mine does sometimes when cold. Usually only on first takeoff. Once the engine oil has got to it it's fine.
Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

unsure. i feel it through the clutch lever and throttle. i suspected it might be the cold-idle thing, but I backed it all the way out and it still did it. so I hooked up my gopro to watch it and ruled it out. did same for clutch arm at the case.
what it feels/sounds like is some buzzer right below the key. it doesn't always do it, and seems to go away after warm-up.

These adapter plates are bulky. They may quell some buzzing owing to the extra mass but the riding position is not adjustable once installed and may well be worse or awful. There are vibration dampers available that are also adjustable for height and distance.
If more comfort is desired I would go with a different set of handlebars over these.

There is also a method to determine the proper handlebar angle. Strangely, despite all the complaints about the stock handlebars, the OEM bars fit me perfectly.

Here are the vibration dampers. https://www.amazon.com/Rox-Speed-FX-Anti-Vibration-Handlebar/dp/B002LGPXBC/ref=asc_df_B002LGPXBC/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309804735743&hvpos=1o8&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10348821865949943612&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=t&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9001993&hvtargid=pla-567809079547&psc=1

Thick walled aluminium handlebars in conjunction with the stock bar ends eliminate the tingles.
 Are you still using the stock bar ends Quantum?

currently I have the stock handlebars with stock bar ends. handlebars are as they come from the factory, just rotated back (down) as far as possible without hitting the tank

i have no issues with handlebar vibes or stability

if "yay", should i get black, titanium, or gold? i have the black/grey model with green frame (i.e. the best one).




I'd do with the grey ones, it all depends on your color scheme you're going with. Find a shop and have them powder coat it candy lime green to match the frame. 😎💅

Hi! I'm the one that made the imgur album linked above! I 10/10 love them, and hated the bike's riding ergos before the swap. The bars are hollow and feel like aluminium, but I haven't noticed any additional vibrations or weakness from the bars. If youre on the fence I would say do it. I also came from a GSXR600 so I may be biased, but supersport ergos are more comfortable for me than upright.
