I bought the bike 2 months ago .I've been doing a lot of reading on the forum and hear people posting about doing 80 mph ...My bike when I get up to 60 mph it feels like I'm in a tornado lol its rough and a lot of vibration and shaking.
Does that sound normal for these bikes?
It's completely stock.

if it is the rubber balancers then the previous owner of the 2003 might have some information on the vibration

My bike will do 80mph, but the wind buffeting at that speed is way too uncomfortable to me!

That said, it doesn't shake, just sounds like the engine's singin'!

Thanks for the replies .
just an update, I been busy starting a new job and never has time to work on the bike.
But I Showed the bike to a friend of mine and he said my tires are not seated properly.
He showed me where the tire has a ring around to guide where the rim should be, on my front and back tire the line is touching the rim on one side and away from it on the other .
He said that is more then likely causing my bounce?
does that sound possible?
I hope that made sense.
