Second post ... advice needed

hi, unfortunately I cannot post outside this forum, so my question goes out ...

I have seen that there are after market handlebar raisers and those that absorb the vibration too.

Is this a viable option? When I first got my Versys I hardly felt any vibration, now I feel it on my hands, seat and feet ... ! Is this standard on a Versys? My ER6 also had the vibrations ... maybe it is just our &*(*& roads here?!

The mainstay of the vibration on the Versys seems to come from the parallel twin engine configuration. Speedy makes a nice anti-vibe riser:

If you have excessive vibration do a throttle body sync. It will reduce vibration. Should be done annually anyway.

You must be new to motorcycles (or at least multi cylinder ones).... Multi cylinder motorcycle engines since the dawn of time need a carb sync and now the more modern throttle body sync (fuel injection) once in a while... Unlike a car that uses a central throttle body, motorcycles uses one for each cylinder... From time to time these individual throttle bodies/carbs need adjustment so that they are supplying the same ratio of fuel/air ratio as each other.... Hence "balancing" the throttle body term is used to describle this process... The process is described in the routine maintenance section of your manual...
