Carpal tunnel, bigger grips, or video game syndrome

Who makes a good oversized grip?
Also, I used the hell out of the clutch going up the trail made by the devil. How tough are these WR400 clutches, 2000.
(Ride hard, it's easier)
Thanks, Joe (:

Where were you riding? Can't recommend any grips. Do you have a steering stabilizer? If not get one. Then you won't need the kung-fu grip on your bars. As far as the clutch goes, the 2000 400 & 426 have an intermittent clutch basket problem. Mine exploded recently. Luckily I was able to shut it down quickly , minimizing other damage. Our dear friends at Yamaha chose to not recall the bikes and replace the clutch baskets. They chose to deal with the casulties after the fact. In my case they denied my claim. As much as I like my WR I will NEVER buy another Yamaha product EVER.

I was riding in the los padres national forest (POZO) the trails are rutty nutty
I opened my bike up in some whoops and looked down to see that I was going 55mph. I kept accelerating and next thing I knew my front end was shaking around fiercely (headshake from hell). I squeezed the hell out of the bars and recovered it. Then got back on the gas but the incident scared the b-jesus out of me.
I want a stabilizer bad now.... just the $$$. $$ is killing me or not having one might
