Im looking for a set of grips for my 2022 mt09.I have problems with my throttle hand going numb,and have tried to change my position as to how hard I grip the throttle.I have looked into different throttle locks but there doesnt seem to be adequate room for one.Anyone have recommendations on a good gel grip that may be better than stock?

Grip puppies work for me and my arthritic hands. The larger size helps too.
They go over the top of the existing grips

If you use grips that are not as slippery as the oem-ones you dont have to hold on as hard to keep throttle position. Also less woobling at higher speeds.
This! A tacky rubber grip requires very little pressure to turn or maintain an open throttle. Just draping your hand over it will keep it open once opened. Also, get a grip that is curved like a wine barrel, to fit the natural curvature of your palm when gripping the throttle.
