I have noticed on my last few rides that it doesn't take long until my right thumb and forearm are burning with pain. Makes it almost impossible to hang onto the bars and keep my thumb on the throttle.

Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and what did you do about it?

First ride out on mine last year I had felt that way I attributed it to to things, one I had been riding my 350X mainly and it had a twist throttle and two the vibration. So I went with the flex bars some adjustments to my suspension and a steering stabilizer. Obviously I didn't do this all at once it was over time but it helped with the numbness in my thumb and now whether it is a 1:45 minutes at a XC race or 4 laps in a moto at the MX track the numbness and arm pump is drastically reduced.

I had alot of problems w/ my forearms until I got some of those Fasst brand brass anti-vibe inserts for the ends of my handlebars. Night & day difference. you will only really notice the difference at high RPM's or after a long day. have fun!!!
