Not had any issue with vibration through the bars even on long journeys.
I would check the 4 clamp bolts though because one of mine wasn't tight when I first got it home.

Mine is the same I just guessed I was getting used to the bike after being on a Harley for the last 5 years. I'm away at the moment but I will be checking everything I can when I get back. My right hand was numb after about 1 hour.

I used to suffer with numb right hand on most bikes, the best fix for me I found was riding with my wrist down.

You're gripping too tight... once you get used to the bike, and relax a bit, it'll go away.

If everything is tight , then try adjusting your shock..... you will be suprised how much difference it can make ...

You're probably correct mate. The throttle is very different to my Harley. I've only done 800klms so far with being away. It would explain why it's only my right hand. Need to relax more.:)

Hi guys and girls,
Has anyone made any adjustments/alterations to reduce vibration through the renthal fat bars?

Cheers
I've not noticed any vibration, if it persists put the original mirrors and bar end weights back on, The bar end weights are a major factor in the amount of vibration thru the handlebars
