Bar end weights with Protapers?

Installed Protaper SE and this weekend putting on some Cycra probends.
Do you need the bar end weights with the Protapers?
Are they are just to dampen vibration?
I would really like to chuck em in the parts bin.

You don't need the bar end weights with the ProTapers. Toss them.

+1 on that .. I just did the same thing. Barend weights are not necessary.

What's going to hold the knuckleguards on if you toss the bar ends? I'd like to know what you come up with because I'm installing the same on mine.

Bar ends needed

I've been looking for bar ends with the gadgets that fit inside the handlebars to hold the ends in place. If you plan on tossing them, I would gladly pay shipping to get a set.

It seems the prior owner of my bike took out the bar ends and lost some of the parts needed to hold them securely in place.
