Leaving black strips around rochester and going threw 5 tires a season.
that would totally be one of mine. but i am without wheelies. i guess im just to damn scared to drop my bike. i dont care about going down but i dont have the money to fix it if i did.I would say that my worst riding habit would be wheelies. I can't seem to go anywhere without atleast a few.
Yep, that's a nerve thing like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It would be because you're pressing down on your wrists. I have a similar problem. I'm thinking about adding 3/4" or 1" risers under my superbike bars. I also picked up one of those throttle rocker things recently but put it on the clutch side to help support my wrist. It actually seems to help. I wish I didn't have these wrist issues...it's really annoying and painful.idk what im doing wrong... maybe its my weight too far forward, or maybe to tight of a grip. but my hands go numb when im riding my cousins 954 with clip ons. any ideas? that would be whatever i do wrong
Some of my weight is on my wrists, but it's really my left wrist that bothers me the most because of the clutch and the weight from leaning on it a bit. I have to wear braces all day at work because I have a repetitive stress issue with my wrists (not carpal tunnel syndrome, but similar).Are you supporting yourself on your arms? My SS has a VERY aggressive stance, so I have to use my core to support me instead of my arms. The plus side is I get a great ab workout.
Yeah, I have a Barsnake in my bars as well as heavy stainless bar ends. The Buell vibrates a LOT at lower rpms. It's not so bad once you get above 3000 rpm, though.I've heard vibration can also make them go numb. Some suggestions I've seen for that cause of the problem are to fill the void inside of the bar under the grip with silicone and/or lead shot, or wearing gel palm gloves.
