I am not impressed with the blackbird bar ends, two of my older bikes have screw in threaded bar ends that get tight and are solid, the blackbird have these wimpy rubber style inserts inside the bar that cant be really tightened down. I found this out when I changed them out to heavier units and the throttle lock from Jaws. What a pain in the ass. And why are the stock bar ends so light and tiny, just odd to me.

Because they make up the mass with the insert itself.

A lot of riders seem to claim the XX is super smooth but I have yet to find it. Next season I will sink the throttle bodies and see how smooth it runs after that but in the mean time I changed out the wimpy bar ends to heavier units and it did make a difference with vibrations. My XX is a 2000 and runs like a clock but I dont think they are a smooth as what some people think.
