2015 Vulcan 650S Vibration at 2800 - 3100 rpm

Does anybody else feel significant vibration at this rpm? It really goes crazy when I'm accelerating through it.

My experience is the S doesn't like to be below 4k rpms, which made breaking it in that much harder. I wouldn't say "significant" vibration, but jerky and a little fussy, yes.

Agreed. To me it doesnt seem to mind cruising below 4k, but doesnt like to accelerate through the lower rpms without that vibration coming through.

I'm definitely sensing vibration, but just got the bike and working the break through mileage. Will see how it goes as the miles add up.

Yeah we are all agreed here i like to keep mine in over 3500 rpm to avoid it. taking off in first doesnt seem to bother it though

I have only driven mine for approx. 100 miles, but I haven't noticed the vibration you mention - however I agree that it drives better above 3.500 rpm

For me the vibrations start at around 2200rpm till 2800rpm....they are quite significant, but I am still breaking it in....feeling is its getting a bit better although I think it wont get a lot better, its the nature of the bike and ninja engine.

I get the same vibrations too. I've put about 100 miles on mine and notice the vibrations around ~3k. It's a very rev happy engine!
