thanks guys for the info. this only happens when i ride, does not happen when i drive, mow the lawn, etc...

i will try the riding position change, because i do believe it is me putting too much weight forward on my hands. but my left hand doesnt go numb...

bar ends are stock (from what i know)... they are the metal ones...

I have the same problem with my throttle hand. It's mainly happens when i'm going a pretty good distance at or close to a constant throttle position.

This is most common amoung in line 4's
I think they all to it to some degree.
Some bandaids are heavier bar ends.
and for actual handel bars I think there is a product called Bar snake, which fills the hollow bars, I have never tried either.

I do use a cramp buster on my cruiser for long rides, it also worked well on my Bandit.

You will likely find typical cruising speeds to be the worst.
70 to 80 try staying out of that range.
Perhaps even a gear change to move to a different RPM range at cruising speeds Up or Down, just to out of the most buzzy area when crusing.

Basically its the Nature of the beast.

Well padded gloves and a relaxed grip may help.

If you change your riding position and you still come up with the same problem, try picking up a set of motovation weighted bar ends.

I had the same problem. use your back muscles to keep your body up right, instead of leaving the weight on your hands

Seriously, try to squeeze the tank with your knees a little to relieve your arms.
I was waiting for something like that.

I have the problem and for me it's all related to positioning. It helps tucking elbows in (similar to doing tricep extensions) and adjusting your hand so that you make sure your pinkies are making good contact with the grips evens out the pressure across the hand. When cruising, my hands are relaxed on the handlebars, not gripping them tightly (ie, not holding onto the bike with the handlebars, but with my core muscles / legs).

Doing the "elbows on the knees" does mostly the same thing, but I dont like to ride in that position so much, unless on the highway as it magnifies road bumps and causes my feet to burn where they contact the footpegs after about 5-10 minutes (which also causes me to adjust my feet frequently).

Also make sure you aren't getting out of position when braking, as it's easy to want to lock your arms when slowing down. Keeping my knees tucked into the bike helps use core muscles during braking, taking some of the force off the arms/handlebars.
