Will be grabbing Driven D3 grips and I'm thinking maybe changing bar ends.
First bike here, not really sure if bar ends are for looks or more for vibration problems.
I'm having some pain in wrist from bad riding habit (putting weight on wrist) that I'm trying to get rid of, so maybe some heavier bar ends would help.

TST has some nice Bar Ends that double as sliders. They screw right into the end of the bar weights in the R3s handlebars. Easy Peasy. $18.50 plus shipping.

The pain you have is probably from compression of nerves in your palm. Usually starts with tingling. If you have it every time you ride, you could end up doing some nerve damage that could take a long time to heal.

I haven't noticed an issue with vibration in the R3s bars with the TST bar ends. Heavier ones are available if you really need them, though.

Video review (more of an install video than a review of how well they work) of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53KrSFLYWdY

These weigh 17.2 ounces each! If these don't stop any bar vibration, nothing will!

Another option is finding some gloves with gel pads in the palms.
