Use your legs and abs to sustain your upper body weight instead of your arms.

Try putting your feet on the rear pegs as well... just don't fall asleep!

And in fact the stomach muscles support the lower back; that is why you see people with weak stomachs having back pains all the time.

I ran a set of foam grips on a bandit in the past and I remember them being OK. When I bought the ZRX last year, the guy had already installed a pair of foam grips, but for some reason I never was comfortable with them and ended up replacing them with some Superbike grips from Motorcycles Unlimited. After the switch I felt like I had better feedback and more control. Just my experience, but with the nice grips available now, I'd look at something other than the foam grips.

Heli Bars FTW!! I love them on my R1

As far as the throttle rocker, I would suggest one as I had problems with my throttle hand also b/c of having to hold the grip so tight since the throttle return springs are very strong. I was very pleased with the throttle rocker (name brand one with the velcro strap not the clip on one) until I lost the 1/2'' wide 'rubber band' that goes between the grip and the rocker to keep it from rotating around the grip. After that, it has become mostly a decoration. so buy one and don't lose the band!

I got the Crampbuster which you can get at most stores, I got it from HoH last year. It really helps a lot and made a big difference. It is also pretty firm in place and doesn't move around at all.

Not my bike, just a picture I found on the net. I have them on my Gixxer. Like I said they aren't the prettiest but my hands love em. Besides who sees your grips when your on the bike.

thats not the issue. it only happens when im in the most upright position with only my throttle hand on the steering, the other on my hips. im sitting almost straight up with little to no weight on the throttle.
