Wondering if one of the new 2004 owners can comment on the well documented bar buzz the 2002-2003 bikes suffered from when engine speed was operated aroubd 4000 rpm. Motovation barends improved the situation on my '02 but what about the '04s? New engine config (shoter stroke/larger bore) might alter the buzz point on the new bikes.

I've known that the GSX-R has a counterbalncer to reduce this and read today the Honda RR-1000 has one as well. Never having ridden either bike I am not sure what these devices do.

Is it severe enough for you to be considering heavier bar ends? When my son dropped my bike at low speed that longer bar end dented the frame.
