Bike handlebar vibration I

May 30, 2015

In common with other riders, I experience hand tingling after about 30 minutes ride on the Yamaha XJ6. The best fix would be to stop the vibration but engines vibrate and I guess the only option would be to take the engine out and set it on rubber mountings. Seems a very pricey route, if at all possible. So I am going to try several options. First I have bought and fitted Grip Puppies which seem very expensive for the material used.

I fitted the puppies over the existing hand grips

And with some soapy water and rolling the grip up like a condom (so I am told)

I have managed to fit the grip. I think I should have trimmed to length before fitting to get a better finish

But the way it looks will not matter if the puppies reduce vibration
