Apart fromt the obvious make sure front tyres ok ie no flat spots etc etc make sure its balanced and a good set of bar end weights...and also relax a bit more youll find it will also help thumbs

try turning the h/bars back or forward, loose bolts a tad/retighten to get a more comfy position, sounds like back might be best to get a bit of weight off your hands.

Cheers for replys lads could be a combination of needing to relax and maybe move bars will give it a shot , not out on bike as much as i'd like so maybe tense when i am thumbs

will you say how you are getting on be interested, there was a similar thread a little while ago, advice was to grip the tanks with the knees more and generally take tension off the hands.

Takes a bit of practice and adjusting but I'm sure you will get there in the end, used to have those sort of probs but now stay in the saddle for hours.

I used to get this, one of my mates said put sand in the bars, thought he was taking the p*ss but it worked, put the sand in once it's filled up, start dripping water in so it compacts together, then put the other bar end in, dont put to much water in though, then take the other bar end out check the sand is damp add a bit of sand if you need to drip a little more water do so, then put the bar end back in. Job done thumbs

The sand deffo works, but there's another thing you can do, get a length of hose pipe put it through the bars get some silicon start to fill the hose pipe when the silicon starts coming out the end slowly pull the hose pipe out keep filling making sure you pull the pipe out until the pipe is out and the bars are full of silicon no vibrating through the bars thumbs
