What are the disadvantage of removing the handlebar dampners when you install Kuryakyn grips? The dampners are on the bike for a reason, but cannot be installed when the Kuryakyn grips are installed.
They "dampen" vibrations and they actually work. Some can feel the vibrations some can't. The Kury grips are nearly heavy enough to compensate so there is little difference. I can't run without them, my hands get numb.
