installed the inserts (10 min.) but have not ridden yet...
running and reving the bike in the driveway there is a noticeable decrease in vibration in the bars though not eliminated as described, the seat vibrates more then the bars now...
worth the money but not a total godsend.
I'll see how i feel after my first dune trip...I know i get abused riding in the desert but most of my trips have been in the sand and i dont recall if the vibe factor was as bad. The inserts are the affordable way to go for sure tough.
Can't speak to the inserts but, I think the Flexx bars are worth every dollar. I felt the vibration anytime (XC, Dunes, trail) I rode and it use to give my hands a great amount of fatigue. The flexx bars have eliminated that, plus they raised the bar height just a bit and I can appreciate this.
I would have to say it is a toss up between them and my steering stabilizer as to which one is the single best purchase I made for my quad.
I absolutely love my flexx bars and will never race/ride without them again. I've broken both elbows and my wrist and had lots of problems during and after the race with them hurting. Since I put my flexx bars on I have not had any of those issues. I put off buying them for a long time due to the price, but I can honestly say now that it was money well spent.
