I'm looking to install handlebar weights (previous owner removed it from my 1100 boldor). I cannot find the OEM so looking to get the closest aftermarket set to keep the look as orignal as possible. Does anyone have any recommendation? I dont even know what the diameter is to look for one on fleabay. Any help is appreciated. Cheers

This really isn't a solution to what you asked, but I've used it to combat handlebar vibration and it seems to work.

I made my own pour-able vibration damper using the old school soft permatex blue RTV mixed with small shot gun pellets you buy in a bulk bag.

You can control the shape easily using a piece of a wine bottle cork .

Section the cork by cutting off a small disc cut off the end. 1/2 inch should work. Make a small pie cut in it.

Use any rod like early americans used to load muskets to push the pie section into the bar a desired , measured distance.

Mix the RTV and shotgun pellets into a slurry .

Push the mixture into the bar with an ice cream stick or suitable device.

Leave some space at end for bar ends now or in future..

hang bar vertically with the slurry end up till it dries...

Do the other side......

Been doing this for years and it certainly works...

Not as neat as a formal bar end, but it works for narrow bars and bars with bends after the grips , where stock honda weights were too long....

I use the old school blue RTV because it's cheap at the Evil Empire and seems the softest of the other colors.

I guessed that that soft pliable RTV would work best, maybe someone else knows better.

This is the only application IMO that the blue is better than one of the other available choices.

I've seen them on eBay new from China. Keep looking in the 1100f section.
