Yeah I have a vibration noise too and the vibrations in the handlebars could be annoying on long trips. Im having Oxford heated grips installed, will see if that fixes the 2nd issue. Wouldnt take much to make this bike perfect...more blacked out parts, less silver, more isolation between plastic parts, good rubber mounts on the handlebars, and maybe drop the redline to 8000RPM but squeezing more torque down low, that and of course a decent seat that was actually tested on a longer ride then going around the factory parking lot. It's already quite a bike for the price but with just these cheap upgrades they'd blow the competition out of the water.
That said, I paid 5000$ CDN for my 2011 with 4000km on it, so I'm trying to be reasonable on expectations :P
