I've tested it, can't say anything negative about it. Worked as advertised, however the effect was rather small and if I wanted an totally smooth engine I would have bought one with an counterbalancer in the first place. Therefore I removed it from my bike.

...and more cylinders.

I've had one on for a couple of years - 2010 G5 with Hitchcocks 535 conversion. My bike was never a shaker, but there was a really unpleasant vibration up my spine when I straightened my back while riding. With the Carberry plate fitted this no longer happens. It was worth fitting for this alone.
I wouldn't say there's much difference otherwise, but as I said, my bike never had a vibration problem, apart from the spine thing when I was trying to be more disciplined about my tendency to slouch.
