Like somebody else said, bar end weights don't eliminate vibrations, they just change them to a higher or lower frequency, and also change what RPM range they are most noticeable at.

People are sensitive to different kinds of vibrations - so even though the bar end weights may work perfectly for most riders to reduce the discomfort caused by vibration, they may not make any difference to some riders who just don't notice the vibration in the first place. And then there are those who will find the "modified" vibrations provided by the bar end weights to be MORE uncomfortable than the vibrations without them.

'Tis not the science of cylindrical shapes which can be propelled through the atmosphere by a combustible fuel.
