Ergal Bar ends

FYI, I have the MV Corse Ergal bar ends on my F4RR and notice that vibrations are much more than on my Ducati which has very heavy ones from the factory. This translates into fatigue and some carpel tunnel syndrome-like weakness feeling the day after riding. So, perhaps the heavy bar ends are the way to go, but I like the way the Ergal MV Agusta logo'd one looks.

Ride Safe.

Anything to do with nerve damage, which is what is happening with your Carpel tunnel like syndrome needs to be taking care of as much as possible. Once a nerve becomes damaged the only cure is abstinence. Riding bikes and life in general can be come painful and unpleasant if you don`t..

Same here - tried the MV Corse ones, Tamburini, DMV Long bar ends from Design Corse - nothing works, the vibrations make my hands go numb in 10 minutes.

The only good ones I found are these:

Virtually no vibrations at any rpm after installing them, and they look more or less ok.

Interesting, thanks for the tip on nerve issues. I may just put my stock ones back on if I start putting miles on her. The Ergal ones are very very lightweight, but the weight advantage at the expense of my hands and wrists is not a fair tradeoff. For show, the upgraded bar ends are just that, for show only or for short rides around town.

On the nerve issue: Body positioning does wonders for relieving nerve numbness. If your hands are going numb from the little finger through the ring finger, try repostioning your elbows. If it is your thumb and forefinger, repostion how your shoulders are held.....

Try working on your spine instead.
