Hi, just picked up a new ZX6R today. This like my fifth sportbike. My last bike was 954RR. But I noticed after 15 min of riding, my left hand is hurting so much from grabbing a clutch lever. My right hand is fine and I love the ergo. Has anyone experienced this ever? I figured it may be a new spring on gear box being stiff or am I getting old??

Thanks!

Well I managed to tilt it down and I have almost no pain now. I still need to develop some more strength on my left hand. Thanks for your great tip!!!!

Do some wrist exercises!! [:M42]
j/k. Try doing some wrist streches and rolls. Thats what I have to do. I ride to work everyday (120 miles round trip) I get the occasional wrist cramp aswell.

You double-clutch your ZX-6R? I dare not ask how...I think you mean you do the racer thing, clutchless upshifts and maybe downshifts too.
