my last japanese bike (86 gsxr 750) put my hands to sleep in 20 minutes from buzzing in the bars. i am probably getting an 09 abs sv next month. how is this bike in this area? can you make it through a tank full without numb fingers/hands? ???
When I got my bars adjusted correctly to fit me, I quit having any problems with numbness. Sometimes if I grip too tight on the bars there is a slight problem, but it's not a constant problem. Plus occasionally the first ride or two of the season I have that problem, but again it goes away once I ride a little and relax.
a friend of mine has a gsxr750 and bought some cheap carbon bar ends----and he complained they 'buzzed' too much when he rode. he went back to stockers and turns out.....no more buzzing. the bar ends serve as weight to dissipate that shock.
