My hands are killin' me

Hey everyone. I just bought a 2013 1199 Panigale R. I love this bike! Sexy and fast, but when I ride it the bars, grips or gloves make my hands hurt. Are there better grips or gloves to make the pain go away? I've had bikes before and this hasn't happened to me on any of them. That's really my only complaint on the bike (besides the GPS failure). Any help would be welcomed

You bought a race bike. It is only comfortable on track.

Thank you. I’m aware of that. I was looking for advice on gloves and grips, not pointing out the obvious.

I wear silk undergloves, surprising how much it alleviates the ache.

Best thing you can do is to improve your riding "posture". There should be almost no weight on your hands while riding. Grip the tank with your knees and use your back and abs muscles to keep your torso in position. Your elbows should be bent at all times.

Thank you. I'm sure I just need to get used to it. I turned the engine brake down. I had it set to full so everytime I let off id get pushed into the tank and all my weight was on my hands to the bars.

You should always be "light on the bars" as mentioned you need to support yourself with your body. I would try moving you pegs in a position that allows you to squeeze the tank.

Yeah the PO installed some really nice rearsets. I'm going to play around with them and figure it out. I love the bike though, it's a blast to ride

You probably should be riding on you toes rather than the middle of you feet.

I don’t know what you do but most touring bikes have you underneath your foot arch. These are more like the gap from your foot to your big toe.

Yeah I used to do that on my R6. Riding my Harley has made me soft and I have to remember to move my feet back to sport bike riding.

You may want to add some bar-end weights to help keep the vibs down as well. I have these on all my bikes.
