I picked up new red anodized bar ends for the wife's bike today. They are drastically lighter than the factory units. As such Im looking at other products like Bar Buzz Kill and Bar Snake. Any of the members have experience with anything that works with the lighter bar ends?
Yes, that is their intended purposes. I didnt realize how much lighter they were going to be over the factory ones. The products mentioned in the OP are also designed to dampen vibration in lieu of using something heavy. You can also use thicker softer grips to offset the effects (numb hands). Ive never used any other dampening method, hence the inquiry.
I spent half my day today :crying: traveling to Capri Tools to pick up a 12mm Triple Square 1/2"Socket :| - to find out that it doesn't actually fit the bar end, it's too small :surprise:, so while I was there I tried the 14mm and it seemed it might work :wink2: so I took it. Got home and put it on my 1/2" breaker bar and it doesn't work - just a mm or 2 too small. The 1/2" breaker bar without a socket is too big and a 3/8" ratchet drive is too small. WTF!
What is the correct size Triple Square for the bar end on our 959?
Got the new grips on today. Unfortunately the vibration is still sufficiet that Im going to swap the bar ends back on. The good news is that I still have em! Ill go get the right tool to torque them back on to spec.
Dingo is right about about the 15mm Triple Square (XZN) being the correct tool. They are readily available at your Audi tool supplier or on Ebay. Often you can pick them up on Amazon. Not sure what the status is now. A 16mm will work in a pinch.
