Post Versys 1000 handlebar vibration

Hi,
only had bike for a week and find the my hand goes tingly after a 1/2 hour. Is this common or does my bike have more vibration than most?
thanks,
Perry

Try loosening your grip on the throttle, or is the tingly on both hands? .Just try to loosen yourself when riding as most riders do have a habit of stressing the hold on the bike handle.

Welcome

I had same problem on my Versys 650. It is my first motorbike ever, so I was unconsciously hold hard grip. I have that problem first one and half month until I didn't get how motorbike reacting, and how to take control on him.
If is that your first motorbike, you probably have same problem like me. Just try to loose grip on throtle and relax, and you will be fine.
Also I recomended to buy Slip-on Foam Anti Vibration from aliexpress for 1 - 3 $, it will also reduce vibration 50% minimum

Agree with Karan. I added foam to mine after my first long ride and painful tingles in my hand. Corrected it right away. Ease your grip, loosen your gloves, get foam. Keep your wheels below you. No problems since.
