I have them on my KLR650. They've been on there awhile, so I forget how much of a difference they made. I know I felt an improvement, but at this point I'd have to remove them to recall how much. On the thumper every little bit helps. I'm not distracted by vibration on the Vee.

The thing that Ricor makes that really made a difference on the KLR are the Intiminator valve thingies. It still amazes me that something so small and odd seeming could make such a big difference. If I was dissatisfied with the front end on the Vee, I'd look into a set of these. Back in the day, Ricor had a 50% discount on the Intiminators and Vibranators. At full retail, I find them to be pricy farkles if you don't really need them.

WOW! Holy Cow! What more can I say? These things are great! Did a 200 mile trip on Sunday and I tell you what, my hands have never, NOT gone to sleep on a bike going that far until now. No, I am not associated in ANY way to this Company. I will never have another bike that does NOT have these installed. I could not believe the difference they made for me. Great investment and a 10 minute installation on the Wee.
I am telling everyone about these things!

The Ricor Intiminator damping valves don't to into the Vee cartridge forks. They are for damping rod forks on the Wee and other bikes with budget forks. (RaceTech Gold Valves upgrade the Vee fork damping, while either Ricor Intiminator or RaceTech emulators...or Traxxion cartridges...upgrade the Wee fork damping.)

Did you try them with the hand guards?

It's indicated that they don't fit with the original hand guards and I think it's a pity.

Yes I have the hand guards. The newer models they are selling now fit the Wee with the handguards. They have not updated their website. I love these things!

I just bought some 5/8 diameter steel stock and cut off however long it took to fill the rest of each side of my handlebars, and then I epoxied them in. I'm coming from an '83 Yamaha Venture V4 : very smooth & I have definitely felt a fair amount of vibration from my 05 650. We'll hopefully see how this mod does in the next couple of weeks if I can finish installing a bunch of different farkles this weekend.

Motorcycle Consumer News had a good write up on them. That's great that they work so well on a bike as smooth as the wee.

I've had them on my Wee for about 18 months. In fact so long I had forgotten they were there. I don't have vibration issues so they must be working. Unfortunately I still get a numb throttle hand, which is why I originally fitted them; I think it is unrelated to vibration as I get it driving the car sometimes. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
