Default Apache RTR - Bar-end weights fallen, please help!

Hi Bhpians,
I had bought a Apache about a year ago, and during that time both my bar end weights fell off.
Now I am planning to put Pulsars bar ends (because they are comparitively heavier and would reduce the vibes on my handlebars)
Would that be possible and where would I be able to source them from ?

Also when the Bar-Ends fell off , the rubber holding them is still inside the handlebar, so any suggestion how to remove them from there ?

Thanks !

I am surprised Techno hasn't posted just yet. If he doesn't then bother to drop him a pm.

The bar-end weights in my apache also fell off. They were not available at any dealer in Delhi and Noida including the official TVS stockist in Karol bagh. Finally had to settle for after-market ones from Karol Bagh. They are working well enough. The ones from Pulsar and CBZ do not fit.

Note: The weights themselves and the Nut to fix them do not come as one assembly. make sure the dealer has both the things in stock.

Oops I dont know how I Skipped this one.

Anyways, I really havent heard of bar end weights falling off on any of my bikes (Pulsar, ZMA & RTR)

Like someone said fitting ones from Pulsar might not be possible.

Did you try getting the stocks ones? Also do you still have the fallen ones?

As for vibes are they as much as other RTRs or more?

Please let us know

p.s - If the RTR 180 is launched soon then it may have heavier bar ends or some other means to reduce vibes.
