............I've given up explaining the proper method of determining grip angle. 👈👉


 Not broom handles..............

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

Looking for advise on what I'm going wrong or can do better to avoid hand fatigue. 

I learned to ride on my Z400  and use to get numb hands I attributed to the "death hold" I had on the grips. [snip] Looking for any input could it be riding posture, ergonomic differences

Grip the bike with your knees, support your upper body with your torso and not your arms. You should be able to control the bike by just holding the grips lightly between thumb and index finger.
