Vibration

I don't think so. But, at that speed there is so much else goin on, I never noticed. That must be one heck of a vibration.

Nope, neither of ours has that problem!!! We are just waiting for the 167HP model with the 6 speed to be brought out for sale.

Since this discusion borders on....
poor judgement :roll:
Illegality :shock:
possibly fun 8)
If I (which I will neither admit or deny) would have gone in excess of 100mph :p I would have experienced No vibration - even if I were to have possibly gone over 110mph :twisted:

No - Yesterday I was at the Lone Star Rally where There might have been (again neither confirm or deny) a speed experiment on 41 mile drive. But I was in Montgomery county last weekend.

Okay it maybe just another new black wing in the area, that was the first black one I've seen around here besides mine. If you do ride up around Montgomery, Conroe, Richards, Plantersville, Anderson, or the Woodlands on the weekends you'll probably run across me most any weekend. Was the Lone Star Rally really wild and crazy?? I heard 3 different bike wrecks kiilled some riders. :cry: T.

exhaust note

At the higher speeds on my bike I have an exhaust note that cause a slight vibration in the foot pegs. At first I thought I had some kind of transmission problem. Had my friend Paul that has a 2001 ride it and we came to the conclusion that it was simply from the exhaust vibrating a little.
