my right hand is killing me from the arthritis after the ride home, I must get something done about it.
I cant ride it if it's going to do this to me every time I ride it.

And no it's not from doing anything else with my right hand.

might be worth trying a softer rubber grip like they had on the old brit stuff - that swhat i use there slightly balloned in teh middle and are reasoably soft so makes it a bit easier in hand

At NABBED I tried the thumb throttle on the Quad that they had there but it was no good for me because of the arthritis.
I am trying to be positive but it's not looking good for me at the moment, and after 51 years since I first started riding I will find it very hard.

Patience Kingo - dont give in theres always a way around most things.

If you give in you will regret it

dont forget about the foot throttle i mentioned sure Odie could advise you there.

How about soemthing like a throtle rest

Small tapper or double sided tape to grip the throtle then you can use your hole hand to press on it, if useing a crosser quick action throtle then you dont need a full turn as they act on quarter turn.

Cramp Buster

Same thing, different name.

They're usually a heavier action, though. I've got a weak (that's weak, okay, not limp!) right wrist through breaking it years ago and I have had to change all me q/a throttles back to 'normal' ones because they really hurt on long journeys.

i've suggested a mx throttle but with a heel of the palm rest built into it. it would have to be an mx one as the heel rest would get in the way on a conventional twistgrip due to the amount of rotation needed
