Engine vibration in higher gears

When I’m accelerating and I get into the higher gears the engine starts to vibrate until I let off the throttle. Just wondering if anybody may know what the issue may be

Possibly shifting to higher gear too soon, what gear, speed and rpm do you experience this vibration?

I’m not shifting too soon. When I shift and hold the throttle open all the way it will gain speed and start vibrating. If I let off on the throttle and slowly accelerate it doesn’t happen. It only does this in the top couple of gears
