Will be curious what the dealer says.     But I can't help you as I seldom see 5000 rpm cause I ride like an ole' lady. That said, check the motor mounts and if good forget about it.    UP

I am having the vibe too. I have installed murphs buzz less bar ends. I have torque the too 7 foot pounds as specified. It moved the vibe to a higher rpm. I the tried 8 foot pounds which moved it to a even higher rpm. Tomorrow I will try 9 ftlbs. Hopefully it will move the vibe above 5k rpms. Murphs instructions day try 6 ftlbs. 6 did not work. At 6 ftbs my mirrors shook so bad I could see multiple cars behind me instead of one.  So the kit from murphs work but you have to fine tune them.

A good throttle body sync may help lessen some of the vibrations.

Interesting. I have no vibration at all that I could complain about. But then I've come off a Harley....    My C-14 is as smooth as glass.    UP
