School me on bar end weights

Hello Fellows,

I know that bar end weights reduce vibration but what determines how much weight is required? Do both weights need to weight the same or can they differ a bit?

In my instance I have HDB handguards with their weights, but want to add a Kaoko cruise unit. I have a Kaoko unit already however, they do not make one that fits HDB handguards on a F800GS. I'm wondering if I cut the cruise unit down to size and it weights less than the opposing bar end weight if it will cause adverse vibrations.

Has anyone done this?
