Not cheap but these usually do the trick. Extra Heavy Bar Ends.Any good handlebar vibration dampeners out there for the Yamaha R3? After a while my hands get a bit numb from all the vibration.
I have the TST's. They don't weigh significantly more than the stock ones but they do stick out farther, so will protect the bike a bit better in a crash.I already ordered the TST Industries bar ends, do they make effective vibration dampeners? Or should I opt for more weight.
I dont even have bar-ends in my Vortex clip-ons and I don't have vibration problems. Perhaps you are gripping the bars too tightly?Bumping very old thread. Recently started noticing my hands tingling after longer rides....I am fairly conscious about not putting too much weight on my hands and keeping it in the core, though sometimes I may be guilty of staying in the higher rpms to pass and maneuver more...
I haven’t seen too many complain of vibration so I don’t know if it’s just me, or if my engine isn’t running right since my first service/oil change....I’m now at around 3000km on my 2017 w/ abs. Do most people just replace the stock weights with bar ends? Should I get some? Should I get heavier bar ends?
I am fairly conscious of this because of how much I’ve read of people gripping to hard or leaning too much on the bars and don’t think it is the root of the issue..I dont even have bar-ends in my Vortex clip-ons and I don't have vibration problems. Perhaps you are gripping the bars too tightly?
Not sure if this helps in anyway but I lost my bar end on a little lot side and now riding with only one on my clutch side (heavier aftermarket) while I wait for my replacement piece.I am fairly conscious of this because of how much I’ve read of people gripping to hard or leaning too much on the bars and don’t think it is the root of the issue..
This is the best suggestion. That and keeping your revs down lower, and taking your hands off the grips to move your fingers every now and then to keep the blood flow going.If your hands are getting numb also try squeezing the tank with your legs and use your core to keep pressure off your wrist and hands this will probably be much more helpful than heavier bar ends.
