Maybe the bike needs a throttle body sync. At what RPM's do you feel the vibs?

Just thinking about the simple things, are the bar ends tight?

There's a chance that a slight adjustment of the bars may make a difference to your riding position on the bike ....maybe worth a try before you start spending money  :169:

I have grip puppies on mine, once you get used to the thicker grips they're fine.
