Handle bar mod

I've had my '06 CBR from new & just lately the weight on my hands & wrists has become a bit much, I have tried a few sport touring bikes but nothing comes close to the Honda. Has anyone got any info on a good handle bar mod, & does the fairing nose cone & or screen need altering? Thanks in advance.

You need to learn to ride without putting weight on your wrists.

Grip with your legs on the tank so that you don't have your weight on your wrist. You will be able to feel the road alot better and the bike will handle better as well. Sorry don't know of any clip on mods to help your problem.

HeliBars will get you in a more upright pisition & relieve some of the pressure. I,ve read that they might require trimming of the fairing.
