Any good grip recommendations for cutting down vibration - June 4, 2012, 09:04 AM

Just wanted to get some opinions on what would be some good grips to get that would help reduce the vibration I'm getting on my handlebars, before using bar end weights. I've got an 06 F4i with stock grips and after a good bit of riding my hands get tingly from the vibrations.

I've been looking at the Driven D3 grips, but also might consider the ProGrip Gels. Thoughts?

Fuel Injection or Carb either one the first thing I would do is make sure they are synchronized and that will smooth out the engine considerably.
that's where I would start, go from there.

I'm not sure why they'd be out of sync already. While the bike is a 2006, there's not even 4,000 miles on it. Thank you for the suggestion though. I will look into this as an option.

Quick video that will show kind of what's involved for an 01.
Notice at the end how far out cylinder 3 is.
The specs will tell you what they should be, get cylinder 1 to that level and get them all as close to cylinder 1 as possible.
Well worth having done even if you have to pay a shop to do it.

I believe it's something that should be looked at on the first 1000 mile maintenance.
I've done mine as much as every oil change and they can get out of specs fairly quickly.
Worth checking cause it will make the engine VERY rough.

Get heavier bar ends and switch over to gel grips.

This was going to be my suggestion. Friend did it on his F4 and said it helped tremendously.

You could also try Bar Snake. I've never used it, but it is some sort of gel that you pour into the bars. Just a thought.

I just ordered some weighted bar ends, and will go from there, partially because changing grips is a pain in the ass. I think I will take the advice though and get my fuel injectors checked to make sure they're synced. Thank you!

I was having the same problems on my bike, an r6, so I got rid of the plastic stock grips and put some kevlar rethal ones, at the same time I switched the stock bars for my old sv650 ones that weighted about double. Felt the difference immediatly.
Also try to not hold on to tightly to the clipones. Pretend's you are holding on to your lover's shaft, try using the same amount of pressure.


E che cazzo!

It's definitely not from holding the clipons tight. Plus, my lover likes a tigh...wait what??

I'm sure the weighted bar ends will help significantly!

Installed the weighted bar ends last night and definitely noticed a difference already! I'm sure if I do decide to change out the grips it should help even more, but for now this solution is working for me.
