I now suffer from arthritis and get painful knuckles after a while of gripping the throttle, but no vibration problems.
On my last bike, as an interim measure to help with this and faced with a trip through the Picos Mountains in Northern Spain, followed by a few days in the Pyrenees Mountains Spain/ France border, I taped a length of electrical cable along the throttle grip, so that it sat beneath the middle of my fingers.
This enabled me to relax my grip yet still have control over the throttle. It’s a tip picked up in the ‘70,s whilst I rode motocross
I’ve just ordered some gel grips with really pronounced lumps all over their length, hoping not to have to resort to electric cable and tape again.
