Blistered hands

9 posts in this topic

2 weeks ago I road two days in a row with no problem on my hands. The suspension was too soft, I kept bottoming. I had it valved and sub tanks installed. I'm not bottoming anymore but it seems alittle rough going through the brakeing bumps and woops< I guess anything small. My hands are badly blistered after a day and a half of riding at the same track. Can anyone steer me in the direction of a solution?

Thanks

Did they replace the fork valves or revalve your orig. ones? And what info did you give to the person who did the revalve? Such as rider weight & ability. If adjusting out the compression don't help, I would talk to the person who did your revalve. If the revalve is done right w/the correct info it should feel plush on the small stuff & only bottom once in a while, such as over jumping & flat landings. I do not know your ridding ability, is it possiable you had a case of the death grip? I may be way off, but hope this helps!

I find that blistering is usually caused from gripping too tight. I have used soft compound and now use hard compound Renthal grips(yes really I do) and I rarely ever get blisters...
