Bar End Weights on a K75?

Although I can't feel heavy vibration through the grips my hands are developing pins and needles after 30 minutes or so. Could be high frequency buzz doing this.

My bike does not have bar end weights - do any K75s have them a standard and do they work?

any real world experinecs gratefully received

Thanks, N

It's much more likely that it's a grip or posture issue. Google "master yoda riding position"

There are bar ends weights but they don't work with OEM heated grips.

More likely your issue is weighting the bars with your hands. While riding, squeeze the tank with your knees for about 20 seconds or so, and see if your hands mysteriously start showing signs of relief.

While there may be vibration in the bars for many motorcycles, the K75 is the smoothest motorcycle engine out there, and I kind of doubt you're getting vibration from the bars.

thanks.

Yup - I need to adjust handlebar position to match the built up seat (I'm 6ft 6in). As the bike is quite new I'm obviously gripping on too tight but bringing the bars up and back should help this?

Yoda sounds good too!
