A buddie of mine just got a 04 R1. He told me today that the vibration is extremely bad. His hands are going numb after only about 15 minutes of riding. Anyone else heard of this on the 04 R1? If so, how do you fix the problem?

I haven't experienced anything out of the ordinary, what machine did he own prior?

Thanks!
He has never owned a bike before, this is his first bike. I know, let the lashing begin.

That's his problem. First bike and does not know the proper way to saddle up. Tell him not to grab onto the clip-ons to tight, be relaxed. Put the bulk of his weight on his butt and feet squeezing the tank with his knees.

Have him increase the weight in the bar ends. The increase weight will change the frequency in which the bars vibrate.

The '04 R1 clip-ons don't vibrate as much as the previous years. It's his riding position.

bar ends

I know the R1 bar ends are threaded into the clip ons. FZ1 bar ends are threaded into the factory bars too. But, does anyone know if the two will interchance. the FZ1 bar ends are much heaver. If i get a chance this weekend I will find out for sure. If not, who makes the heavest bar ends that will work on a 04 R1?
