Unhappy Buzzing/vibrating handlebars

The only thing I don't like about the bike is numb hands after 30 minutes. Anyone have a fix for this?

the bike already has rubber damped bars, so that should really help the vibes. the bar vibes could be greatly reduced by removing the bark busters. the problem is that they cause the bar ends to be solidly mounted, and then the bar ends can't shake to dissipate the high frequency vibrations. There is some relief to be found in tuning, but it's minimal. Lean mixtures will amplify the vibrations.

On my 2016 V-1000 I've had no issue with bar vibration. But on my FJR i did so i went with some HVMP Extra Heavy Bar Ends and it solved the problem.....Kawasaki Bar Ends

Absolutely! Make sure your gloves aren't too tight. Relax your grip. You’ll love the bike. I love mine.
