Ok, i did a search and didn't really turn up what i was looking for. How many of you install after market bar ends on your R1? And what brand do you use? AND are they really needed? I will be getting my 03 R1 here in a few weeks and have read a couple of things about how heavier bar ends help vibration and such. I am used to riding a ninja ZX7R so i am on a whole new learning curve here.
Thanks in advance.

I've got earache's on my 2000 - they work great. Are they needed? Do your hands get numb? If not, then nope - mine were getting a bit numb, especially during track days it seemed when the revs are up so much. Wouldn't go back to the stock barends.
