Handle Bar Grip Vibration

There has been some talk of uncomfortable hand grip vibration on previous threads . I came across a possible solution for some of the problem. My V1 vibrates some, but not as much as my previous bike. Lately I have been playing around with my shock settings trying to tune my suspension for me. So yesterday I started making adjustments to the front rebound screw. The end result was that turning back that screw 1/4 turn significantly reduced my handle bar vibration. My advice is, before you start spending money on ad ons , you might just get out a screwdriver and make some slight adjustments to that screw , ride a few miles and readjust until feel some improvement. If it doesn't work, you have lost nothing, but if it does, it could make you much happier with your bike.

After adjusting my front forks and adding a 3" bar riser (I didn't think the handlebar vibration was bad at all) I added a set of "Grip buddies". They are just foam slip on's for the grips and they increase the size of the grip as well as make it softer. It helps old hands with the beginnings of arthritis.

I like it when the little things fix a problem-well done
