anyone got RSTD bar end weights they want to part with?

I put OEM RSTD bars on my 1300 with the mistaken impression I could use the stock bar ends. Anyone using ISOs and have a set of OEM RSTD bar ends gathering dust?

I went with the inexpensive ISO style grips.. vibration isn't an issue any more than it was with the stock bar and stock grips. and for $40 not expensive compared to RSTD bar end weights.

I will probably go with real ISO grips, amazon has them in black for $35. but I wouldn't mind using the OEM weights in addition. The Kuryakyn end weights are more than the grips. I figure if some has a set they aren't using anymore, i can float some cash and have the best of both worlds.

Harrison.. if you get the ISO grips you can't use the bar ends anyway. So you won't need the bar end weights.

The new grips take up the space the bar ends did and you'll notice the grips have end caps. the Bar ends are the same size as the grip and do not fit inside..

Here's a good read for ya on the handlebars.
