handlebar vibration

I have the 500 twin and was wondering if others have noticed a buzzing in their grips between 51 and 63mph in 6th gear?

Yep, that's why I ride 65. I've ordered a set of Beston grips for mine, I've used them for years, they are a bit old school but I put them on all my bikes and they help me with vibration.

Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool.

I have a pair of grip puppies which help a bit. There are other things you can do but I don't. The bike has more vibes than I would like but they save it from being bland.

Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)

I bought these, cheaper than grip puppies: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Great in the warm months with bare hands or thin gloves, I take them off in the winter when I switch to cold weather 40F+ gloves. Bought 2 sets, haven't worn thru the 1st yet. Definitely tones down bar vibration into the hands.

I swapped my grips out with the Biltwell Thruster grips and they helped out quite a bit.

I put a pair of Grip Puppies on like some of the others have done. They do help a little with the vibration.
