    That's the 96 motor, they do have some vibes to them being a longer stroke.

    so glider you must feel the same thing .. as we have the same rides. it this almost like a tickle feeling i guess . i dont feel it on the cruise pegs just the floor boards. and its not terrible its just litely there

    Yes, I feel the same as you do probably, nothing much to worry about.

    well dave & glider
    i was able to lessen the amount of tickle i felt .... i retouqued the front motor mount and found it slightly loose and retighted my floor boards and found them slightly loose ...cut the tickle by about 30% my bike has 4700 miles on it so maybe you need a retorque to...

    Good to hear that. Did you do the 1000 check with the dealer or do it yourself?

    i got yhe bike used with 2500 miles so have have no idea if the 1000 was done .. ive been over it myself pretty good and fixed a few little thing but other than that i wouldnt know ... my local dealer sucks all they care about is $$$$ ... but if i have a issue ive got a good dealer within driveing distance
