Managed to lose a weight off one side of the bar without realizing it, only noticed it when I thought my left mirror is shaking a bit but the right one is clear as a bell.....🤔

Does it matter which weights I buy? Any recommendations for uk source or just go with whatever is cheap on fleabay?

Cheers

Look for the heaviest ones that will fit.

Heavier = more damping, less vibes, but there is a point where too much weight changes the dynamics to the point where you introduce other frequencies. Get the right ones.

Factory 1200 ones are 200 grams.

I recommend the OEM weights. They are cheaper than many aftermarket ones, and of course fit correctly.

For about double the weight, get the Breva 1100 units, also cheap from Guzzi. They are about twice as long, and weigh 390 grams each on my kitchen scales. (They really helped reduce vibration on my Italjet.)
