    Looking for feed back on your efforts to reduce vibration im feeling through my grips and handle bars. Thinking a good first step would be to try some new grips, the stock ones feel great but i have trouble with my throtle hand going numb. Couple of grips i have found that might work are the Kuryakyn ISO grip, Avon air grip, maybe the H-D foam grip? A throtle rocker might also help?
    Thanks in advance.

    Better grips are a big plus over stock, may look at changing the riser bushings and check all motor mounts and stabilizer links:s

    Good grip Steve, I liked the old school nostalgic bike style H D sells, got a set in Daytona on sale for 20 bucks:D

    try buying the grips hooked to a goldwing...just kidding, I thought that it was one of the things we just accepted as part of riding a Harley and found that I don't feel much vibration untill sitting at a light.:D

    I have the iso grips on all my bikes they worked wee for me on one bike and got round to fitting them to all the bikes they do help to dampen vibration a bit

    Boatdoc, you will find a grip upgrade will improve comfort. I have a set of ISO grips I installed with the throttle assist. I also added a throttle assist/wrist rest on the left side. They (Kuryakyn assists) come in a larger size which is great for the hand usually on the bars. For me it is the left as I use cruise on hwy. A definate increase in comfort! You may also try to adjust your grip technique. I found a softer hold allowed the blood in my hands and arms to circulate better which helped reduce numbness as well. Good luck..

    Set your cruise control, either the electronic cruise, or the suicide screw, and drop your hand for a bit.
