    Hi

    Is it me? when on motorway journey at about 80MPH there is a vibration it affects my  right hand just enough that I have to pull over because of pins and needles i know a bike of this status should have a cruise control which would alleviate the prob!em any one else having the same problem and able to come up with a cure?

    Hi
    I fitted some grip puppies to mine and it seems to have taken the vibration away so as not to cause the pins and needles. They do make the grips a bit thicker but soon you get used to it and the heated grips still work .
    Give them a try they are about £15

    Cheers

    Those vibriations are unknown to me.
    But can be caused by the tires (are they worn?), rims (hit some pavement? Balanced well?) or suspention, sometimes even the bearings can cause vibes.

    I used to have a vibration in my right hand on my Varadero. I don't notice it on the VFR. I do have grip puppies. I would suspect  either the front or rear tire if you didn't always felt the vibration since the bike bike was new.

    Hi

    Thanks for the info, bike has just been serviced the garage commented on how gentle I am she has only covered 7000 miles from new and tyres not even quarter worn they reckon another 10,000 miles .

    The vibration has always been there but I have bought the grips you recommend so give them a try

    I get white finger easily on any bike. I bought a pair of weight lifting, fingerless, gel padded gloves. Sorted. They fit below my M/C gloves as theres no fingers. If you do buy make sure and check for the gel pads. Some cycling gloves have them too.

    Hi Tommy

    Thanks for the info I have added grip puppies and tried them out last weekend with a trip to the lakes with an hour long blast up the M6 they are working a treat so far but Honda if you read these blogs bike is crying out for a cruise control. :440:
