310 hardmount to stop stock handlebar movement?
« on: February 19, 2021, 01:33:40 am »
Hello,
I have the stock handlebars and clamps and want to eliminate the forward/backward slop movement. Will the 310 hardmount kit consisting of 4 metal rings to replace 2 rubber rings on top and augment bottom ones stop that (and be compatible with stock bars)?  I saw posts about new bushings but don’t think I need those as I’m not replacing bars or anything.  Just want to ‘tighten’ it up.  Appreciate any info/advice.

I just used the 310 kit to hard mount my new taco bars, and it totally eliminated movement, obviously, but the most noticeable difference to me is no vibrations. Wish I had done it to my stock bars before spending way more in grips to try to dampen it.

As far as working with the stock bars and risers, I don't see why they wouldn't. The top of the bushing is still even with the tree, and the bottom doesn't change from how much the bushing protrudes as the washer for it fits around the rubber sticking out.

Might send 310 an email asking them as well, they were super friendly and helpful with a question I had when I was thinking about buying the kit.

Thanks for the info! I already ordered them, due in Tuesday so will give it a try and post back results next week.  Figured they’d work but wanted to get some real world feedback. Cool to know 310 responds etc, some others I’ve reached out on similar products haven’t.

I used the 310 kit to mount my TCBros Bootlegger bars (be sure to get a "METRIC" set if you're interested in their bars, they're properly spaced for our Bolts!) and I'm over the moon with the results.

Feels rock solid and smooth as hell in conjunction with my VansxCult ODI grips.

Well worth the investment.
