Hands tingling CBF Mk1
« on: 22 May, 2019, 10:05:15 PM »
I have a 2007 CBF1000A Mk1 and really like the bike but I'm getting like a tingling/pins and needles in both hands after riding the bike after about 20 miles......in lasts a couple of days.
I've put some grip puppies over some progrip dual density grips, tightened all engine mounts but it's still there.
It has the standard bar end weights on.
What else can I do?
It's spoiling what is a nice bike.
Thanks
Frank

It's possible that you're simply gripping too hard. When I got my first bike, I had a similar issue until I learned to relax a little bit.
Old enough to have seen it all, heard it all, done it all. Just can't remember it all.

I too suffered the tingles when I got back on my Mk1 after a couple of years out but like Silver said, sub consciously gripping too tight and it went away when I loosened my grip :015:
Lovely bike, does it all  :123:

Same with me. I found the old tip of gripping the tank with my knees helped me relax my grip.

All good now !!

It happens. The more relaxed grip does it for me too. I recently changed my bars for a Renthal one with Renthal bar ends (for purely cosmetic reasons, the original one had got a bit rusty in places). It still happens, but it's only really noticeable for me after about 50 miles or so. At which point, generally, I'm probably looking to stop for a stretch anyway.

I had really bad hands tingling on my previous bike, Yamaha Thundercat, then I bought Honda with bar risers. I still have hand tingling though and hands still do go very numb after 30 minutes or so riding, I am trying to sit more upright and put less pressure on my wrists but the tingling is still there.
I took BMW with V-twin for a test drive about 2 years ago, and loved the bike, how it brakes and handles, acceleration but 15-20 minutes (literally) later I could not feel my hands so had to return to garage!

I think I've sorted it, I've bought a new pair of gloves and it seems a lot better.
The original gloves have like little pimples all over the palm part, could have been that?
Thanks for all your help! :002:
