So, is this a burg only problem or what? Never had it happen to me with my regular bikes and I've never had a burg. Just tried one once
Can happen on any bike that uses the type of setup that Suzuki uses on the bar end weights. Never have seen it happen on bikes with the fake bar end weights, just the one with the real weights. Never happened on my Honda Pacific Coast, it had a different type of system on the 1989 model - a screw in one. You might be screwing yours in tighter (or whoever put the bar ends on your bikes). That might explain why you are not seeing this with your bikes. As I have gotten older I find that muscle mass has gone away. I now tell people that I have the grip of an eleven year girl. Kind of hard to take to tell the truth. I was a US Marine for 8 1/2 years and was in really good shape as a young man. I guess that our mortality bites us all at some point. Never thought I would see the day that I would struggle to lift some bikes off of the side stand either. I am going to stop before I get too far into the pity party stuff now.
