I know which one fell off.........the one on the right. I lost one too. Because of the throttle it is hard to get it as tight as it should be. I think that the rubber expansion screw should extend into the bar at least a 1/4" more. I think that would keep it. in. Your Suzukie dealer willl sell them to you for about $25.00. They can be purchased separetely.

Gosh, I would think there would be a zillion used ones out there. I don't even remember what I did with mine when I replaced my grips. Maybe everyone is hanging on to them in case someone finds out terrible things happen when you take them off.

I don't have much problem with my right one, it's the left one that keeps working out.

The right one kept loosening up, so I put three layers of black electrician's tape around the rubber on the screw. It was just a bit tight getting it to start into the bar, but once started went in fine. Now it tightens up much better and has stayed tight for several weeks, so far.

One thing you can do to help hold those weights in is to put some rubber cement on the round rubber piece or inside the handlebar. Make is a snug fit before you tighen with your phillips screw driver and hold the weight tightly as you tighten the screw. The rubber cement will hold the rubber pretty nicely inside the handlebar tube and yet won't harden where you cann't not remove the bar weight at a later date. The rubber cement can be bought at Office Depot or Office Max. It is the same stuff they stick new credit cards to the paper when you get them in the mail. You know the stuff it peels off easily.

Well I just lost my left one this morning on the way to work....Had it when I left the house and when I parked at work 20 miles later it was not longer there. But the 264 and interstate 64 is so full of potholes it suprises me that the the bar end weight is the only thing that has fallen off of he bike...Hope it did not get anyones windshield. Guess it is off of to the Suzuki Stealership for an other one.
