Hi All,
My R3 is 1900 kms / 3 months young.
While I followed Yamaha's advise for the 1600 kms break in and didnt go above 8400, revving now above 9000 leaves rather unpleasant tingling in the palms. The ride upto 125 kmph is absolutely delightful with literally zilch vibration, but moving to 9-10-11 k zones ...even for a 20 min ride...leaves crazy sensation in my hands.

Whats happening here. Anyone to my rescue.

Thanks !!


Sam

Be light on the bars. Dont death grip it. Someone told me to hold the bars as if your were holding an "OK" hand gesture around the grips. You could also just use one hand if you are comfortable with that. IMO all bikes vibe at some point, some just less than others and at different revs. Vibes never really get my hand numb, death gripping it definitely does though, regardless of bike.

Vibrations at that RPM should leave you're hands calm and soothing. You are probably gripping to hard. Try relaxing when in that RPM range.
