I have had CTS release surgery in both hands(2001 & 2002) & was able to resume riding after the surgery. My hands are small/male & anything that adds diameter to the OEM grips is out as I don't need larger there, thus the OEM (as found on my R1150R)are what works for me best.
Whats out there that keeps the OEM size, yet actually reduces vibration?
I do find that riding with a less then "death grip" on the grips helps maintain better comfort & still have good control. I also wear thin poly wicking glove liners much as sold for skiing,etc., inside my leather gloves to isolate vibration. I wear winter workgloves year round just for vibration. I saw a pr. of "vibration gloves on Duluth's website just now when looking at the sideclip suspenders there. They have a strap that wraps around your wrist-exactly what you don't want when your carpal tunnel nerve is sensitive to any further touching/rubbing/pushing etc.!
I did buy a pair of the "CT gloves " at a rally but they don't help me-good but not great idea IMO.

Hey Steve. . . . . . .if you get tired of your GP's soaking up water, not very effectively conveying the heat of your heated grips through to your hands, wearing out before their time, or having a hassle installing them, only to feel them "migrate" around your OEM grips. . . . . . .give my Original Beemer Buddies a whirl. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
