A bit of extra real estate.......

.......on the stock WeeStrom handlebars.

210 mm of 25mm alloy tubing - $4.25
2 x plastic tube ends - $2.50 [email protected]
2 x plastic tube clamps -$2.95 [email protected]
Total Cost- $15.15.

I could really use one of those! The SWM cross bar is too small in diameter to be useful. Where did you find those pieces?

I did a similar thing on my RT. Sure is neat to make a handy perch out what you have in the garage or hardware store.
Now where is Wet Marine???

Can't argue with that. Good idea + good price = Not bad at all!

Does it help damp bar vibration?

I don't think it will it's just a light weight method of attaching more crap to the handlebars.

Do you have the stock handlebars, or aftermarket?

Are you getting a LOT of vibration through the bars? Some is unavoidable, but I can't recall anything I'd call excessive in the last 50,000 klms on the Strom.

What is the intended marine application? Are these pieces commonly used for a boat canopy? I just don't want to get that blank stare from my local marine shop guy when I try to describe it. Looks like a great idea.
