Anyone think bar end sliders help with vibration and tingly hands?

I read on a few of the slider manufacturer sites that bar sliders add a tiny bit of weight that aids in the vibration. Just wondering if anyone who installed them saw an improvement in tingly hands? I'm constantly moving my hand around and squezzing the tank to lessen the pressure off my hands every few miles but to no avail. My right hand gets tingly after about 20ish miles doing 70-85mph.

they also work well preventing wheelies

Nah, not here man, I'm constantly moving my right hand around while on the freeway making sure to have a loose grip. I've been at this a couple of weeks now trying to figure out the magic combo of angle and placement of my right hand. No death grip at all. Sometimes I can make it all the way to my office from my home which is 23 miles w/o tingling, but most days I have a bit of it. Under 20 miles I'm ok.

I don't see how placement affects tingle vs no tingle..... Anyway I have DP bar ends..which are lighter than the originals... Never with either did I have an issue....

Damn you guys are lucky. On a recent 50 mile ride I was moving the pinky side up and out to rest the meaty part of my palm on the grip. That would work for 10 miles then I'd get a tingle again. So I'd roll/rotate my entire hand up on the grip to get a new feel and that would work for another 10 miles then a tingle again. That's what I mean by placement. If you've never had your hand going numb, you would have no idea what I'm talking about since you would never have to deal with it. I would say 75% of my friends have this same issue on varying makes. Thought it was just a sportbike thang. Then when I read that bar sliders can help with vibration, I thought I'd ask the forum.

I'm pressuming the tingle comes from high frequency vibrations coupled with the angle of your wrists on the grips putting pressure on the nerve in the wrist. So depending on your torso/arm metrics, I can see why some would have no probs while others, like myself, can have minor annoyances.

FWIW, I have the same problem on 50+ mile rides on my roadbike bicycle. Specialized Tarmac SL4. Same tingle from long durations leaning on my wrists. Maybe I'm just screwed haha

UPDATE:

Bought new and installed some RhinoMoto bar end sliders. Same damn ants in my right hand after 25mi ride to work at 80+mph. Guess they didn't help me. Anyone hear of heavier bar ends than this brand? The parts guy said these RhinoMoto ones are some of the heaviest yet weighed about the same as the oem ones when I compared in my hands.

Also gonna look into diff gloves. I have A-Stars SP1s but will see if any newer gloves have a better palm pad. Just trying diff things.
