A question...


Does anyone else get something like an echo off the side bars? First time I rode with my new side bars on, I got a motor echo off the bars that made me think there was another quad behind me. Found myself keeping looking back to see who was behind me, only to find that there was no one back there. Am I nuts or has anyone else noticed this as well.

Sure do, They set up a resonance and like you said it sounds like another quad is behind you. I drilled some 1/8 inch holes in the bars close to the mounting points (one by the engine mount and one by the upper mount)and filled each hole with as much silicone as I could get in there. This seemed to help dampen the vibration and noise from them.

I think part of the problem with them is they are only using one bolt to mount to the peg mount pole. I have been thinking of drilling a second but have not gotten around to it since the surgery. I don't get a echo but I do feel a vibration and certain speeds.
