hey guys, i am new to the forum but have about 10 years of rider experience with bikes from various brands.

Do you have the original bar-ends mounted on your bike?
Or might they be damaged or even missing, this could cause excess vibration in the handlebars.

Try wedging a bit of rolled up lead sheet up inside the bars ." OLD SCHOOL " FIX :001:

I bought some Frank Thomas Pacific from J+S, they seem better than the others I was using.
cheers

If the time comes around for heated grips then you may have another potential solution.

In 80k miles on my Mk1 it was very rare to come away with tingling fingers and I think the key factor there is that I fitted Oxford hotgrips and chose the Touring version.
They are a nice chunky grip and make the std Honda heated grips on my Mk 2 feel really skinny.

Being thicker the Touring ones will help isolate any vibes.
