Numb Hand Fix

Went for a putt yesterday and started to get the old tingles in my right hand. I have Throttle Meisters so I put just enough tension on the throttle that I didn't have to hold it open with a tight grip but rather could just rest the heel of my hand on the T-Meister. What a diff! No more tingle or numbness, and I could still close the throttle at will. Only did it on the highway and full loose around town. Now all I've got to do is find a way to see where I'm going without having to bend my neck so far back. Need a helmet with more cut out at the top.

another simple fix is Foam Grips, take a lot of the vibration out...

Throttle Rest

I've recently seen someone with one of these. It fits right on the throttle and its molded so that your hands can rest nicely on it. The guy says it made a world of difference....

I've tried foam grips in the past. They make it worse for me. I don't get the feedback I'm used to. I end up gripping so tight I get arm pump. Even if I try to loosen my grip, eventually, I forget and I have a deah grip again.

YMMV.

... throttle rest on a 1098, the next step would be heated grips ...

Or one of these. Problem is gone as you can relax your hand on boring straight sections of the road.

Actually you might have eluded to it in your post. You might be craning your neck & head at such an angle you could be messing with the nerve in your spine, (ever had a neck injury?) even sounds like C-5 & C-6 Try changing your helmet liner (on top your noggin) to make your helmet ride higher so you don’t have to keep your neck at that radical an angle to see.. Next try 3 Tylenol Gel-caps before you go out.. All this isn’t a guess, it’s the voice of experience..

Sometimes problems in the arms/hands are caused by bad rear set positions. You need to have your rear sets adjusted so that you can easily hold yourself up while sitting on the bike without having to hold the handlebars.... just something to keep in mind...
