Hmmm, you got me to thinking. I've got an old GPR setup that I could do the same thing with.
How's that working for you with the rubber mounted bars and the tilt??

Seems like the purpose of those rubber spacers is to help dampen the vibes coming up from the motor into the handle bars. Let us know if you can tell any difference in vibes at your hands now that you have metal in there.
