DL1000 Top Yoke on 650?

Can anyone tell me if the DL1000 top fork yoke will fit straight onto a WeeStrom please? I've been looking at them and the 1000 yoke looks like it has rubber mounts for the bars.
I must be getting old, 'cos I've started to notice that after ratting on for a couple of hours or so at 6 to 7000 rpm in top (sorry Officer...!) the vibes through the bars of my 650 are starting to make my ancient joints ache....

I'm not sure about the answer about the fork yoke but...
You could try putting on grip puppies. They help a lot. You can get them at California Sport Touring among other places

I found out that riding while wearing insulated ( read padded ) gloves got me rid of the tingles I got after riding a few hours at 6 500 rpm. I suppose better grips would help.
