I have an R6 and at first they use to get numb. I still have stock barends and they don't get numb anymore. i found out that keeping your arms locked straight makes them numb faster. Loosen up your grip a little and don't keep your arms locked for a while. This should help with the new bar ends.
I've always had stocks. They're pretty haevy anyway. Just one day my hands stopped getting numb. i started to keep my arms bent a little on long rides and loosened my grip. i haven't gone numb in like four months of riding. I'd say about 4-5000 miles in that time.
