Hey all, just bought a 2015 3up 90hp. After my first two hours of riding, both of my thumbs on my top knuckel had been so worn that they started bleeding. Has anyone else had this problem? Any remodies to this if so? This is my first pwc by the way.

Move your hands further away from the center of the handlebars. lol. Im assuming you are grabbing the bars too closely to the center of the bar, and friction is rubbing your knuckle against

Ouch!
My fingers used to get sore (especially the throttle finger) but never bloody.

You'll toughen up after some regular riding. Hope you heal up quickly.

Maybe somebody or I will try out some dirt bike grip donuts. A simple piece of foam should help. $4 is a pretty cheap fix.

Hey bud I had the same problem. Go get you a pair of weightlifting gloves that have the fingers cut out so they wont retain water or get too hot. They work perfect.

Is this an actual problem for people? Just move your hands so they don't fu*king bleed!

They look good idea I made something like that with foam but yours look better plus gloves gives better grip and protection against the cold


>:D
The thing that sucks about gloves is the tan lines you get lol people see your hands and there like WTF lol. If I had this problem I would probably try the donuts if they don't work wear gloves.

You could always wear a full lycra/spandex skin suit in addition to the gloves. No tan at all and it saves time not having to put on suntan lotion.

I honestly never knew that people got bloody hands riding PWC's. Looks like it a more common issue that I had imagined. Learn something every day.

I used to have the same issue riding dirt bikes, eventually if you keep doing it you will build calluses and it won't bother you anymore, gloves will help but can still happen, my wife has the same thing happen on long rides, move your hands further out and hopefully you toughen up your hands a bit and it won't be an issue
