Reduce vibration on ninja 250r help

Hi guys,

I am a new rider and would like to know what the most effective way is to reduce the handle bar vibration to a minimum.

I would like to be able to ride for longer periods of time without that tingling sensation after riding and also protect my median nerve that is already slightly damaged.

Any suggestions??

I heard there are some heavy bar-ends that can help you a lot.

Bar snake, or the cheapest alternative...fill your bars with sand.

Check the alignment of the front brake lever and clutch lever. Make sure that in your standard riding position you aren't being forced to bend your hands up and the wrists. For some reason the default lever position on bikes is too high.

On many bikes of rotated the brake and clutch levers down to make them more comfortable for the riders. This can make a huge difference.

I have hand / nerve issues as well. The cbr500 stock high bar location makes me numb in no time. Going to an aftermarket set of bars and dropping the bar height helps me a lot. That, and proper positioning of the bars to match the natural fall of my hand position help reduce numbness. My theory is the numbness isn't from the tingle, it's from your position. Tight gloves, close fitting sleeves, and shoulders being restricted round out the list of things that make my hands fall asleep in 15 minutes, or, when corrected, allow me to ride 4 hours almost straight on the race track without issue at 14k rpm on my 250 with aluminum bars.
