Renthal bars do I still need bar end weights?

If I remove the stock handle bars and replace them with the Renthal bars to I still need to keep the bar ends on to eliminate vibration??? Or can I go without? :?:

The previous owner of mine replaced the stock bar with a Renthal 742. The bar end weights do not fit in these bars. I have not noticed any vibration and hence no need for the weights myself. I've never tried the stock bars so I have no reference.
