Grips

Is there some grips that eliminate a bit of the vibration?

Grips aren’t really that effective in reducing vibration. Putting in heavier bar end weights work better for that.

You may have been unknowingly gripping the bars a bit more than usual. Deliberately stay a bit looser.

Yes man, That was part of the problem

The other thing is I just checked my front tire pressure, and it was 40 psi cold

When it should be like 32

The gauge they used st the shop is broken

For sure, one of my own rules is to measure my tire pressure before every ride and to verify anything a shop does.

When I had the stock hand grips on my bike, my hands would hurt after just 15 mins of riding. Then I got the the Pro Grip 717's (same grips that come on the Speciale) and now I can ride for 2 hours straight without my hands ever hurting. I was surprised that a $20 part could make such a difference!

This is interesting. I have no issues with the stock grips, i like them... but I am all for more comfort (if it can be had). Are these progrip thicker maybe and that is why you find more comfort?
