Anyone ever try these grips?



I have carpel tunnel, mostly in my right hand, and I am looking for some thicker grips that might take some of the vibration of the bike off of my hands. These look promising, especially with the throttle side wrist wrest, or whatever you call it. I do plan to do some long rides this summer, and that wrist wrest on the throttle side looks like it will take a lot of strain off of my hands.



Thanks all,

Dan

Yeah, that ought to be good. Easier than removing the old grips to get the new ones on. I'm going to order a set of those today. Thanks.

Take note of the warning... make sure you position them correctly.



The trick will be figuring out where you want the paddle on the throttle.

How wide open do you want the carb when you are resting the heal of your hand at a comfortable angle.



You might check out thick grips without the paddle, and add the paddle as a separate accessory.

You might try a Cramp Buster, they are available from Amazon and also, not by that name, on eBay. I've used them for years and they really help to take the strain off the wrists. Simply slips over the throttle, pressure on the heel of the hand is used rather than twist.
