    Pronounced vibes after first service

    Just got the first service done and released from 8K RPM limit purgatory
    On the way home I noticed the vibes at the bars were more pronounced
    and not from sitting at 10K rpm or going ape sh#t to redline, I'm talking the climb up to 8K rpm (Expected vibes above 8)
    It also seems to have changed in frequency, like pre first service the vibes were like a high pitched electric rotary shaver, or a smooth buzz..which was very tolerable even on prolonged stretches of boring slab. Post first service the vibes were more of a lower pitched vibration like a oscillating multi tool set to the highest speed.
    Didn't complain before but now I guess I am..... Will monitor, hopefully I'm able to tolerate it, if not I think I saw some remedies on here somewhere. This also happened on my K1600B As for vibrations I thought that thing was the silkiest thing around.... until the first service- yes still smooth but I did notice a buzz on the throttle side that would actually make my hand numb, lowered the bars and kind of mitigated the issue.... but what a kill joy
    Anyway enough of me crying- anyone else experience this with their Gen2's

    I'm not sure when it's new in regards to handlebar vibration. I have used 3rd owner 12k miles 2020 XR that have Wunderlich Handlebar Risers, 20mm Part # 41971011. The only vibration I get is when it's way up 10k+ RPM, but I assume that's normal on all motorcycles since RPM is way up there.

    Sorry to be a pedantic twat....but it's actually a 9k rpm limit.

    Smithy.

    Agreed- I do expect vibes at the upper limits, that is normal as with all the other bikes I've owned
    When I washed the bike yesterday I also noticed some other "changes"
    while the bike was on the CS, ran it to dry out any standing water in the engine and associated sections
    the cover for the gps mount was buzzing, put pressure on it and it quieted down same for the mirrors they're unusable at speed but now unusable sitting still at idle. I've had this bike on the CS many times none of the above existed until I had the first service done.
    Thanks for the Part# will keep that in my new "Anti Vibe mitigation parts" parts bin

    You're right, 8K was my own self administered purgatory via shift light to prevent the 9K-10K meltdown
    but since I paid my dues to the mothership I don't really give a flying F%^K since thats passed me now
    and can ride my normal twat ways. 

    BTW- your signature cracks me up every time I see it

    Did the dealer tighten any engine mount bolts? Being a first service they may check them, and if now over tight can make any vibes more pronounced. One of the things to help on Gen1 handlebar vibes is to check engine mount bolts are torqued correctly. This engine had no balancer shaft so the engine can cause the vibes
