My bike viberates quite a bit. it may be just because i have never ridden a twin.... only fours, and am not used to it. Are you guy's bikes pretty smooth? i keep reading about the balancing shaft and how great it is,. is it possible for it to have not ben balanced right or is out of balance?

The bike will have some vibration but if it's like Harley vibration and you can mix paint in your lap at a stop light, I'd have it checked out.

Ive now got about 700 miles on my bike, and the viberation has pretty much gone away for the most part, now it is actually pretty smooth. Most of the differecnce happend between 400- 600 miles, now i am happy!

Many thanks for that .
the only uther thing was may be the dealers use a thinner running in oil for the first few
hundred miles before the first sevice.
