YAVQ (Yet Another Vibration Question)
I've searched through some of the earlier threads on diagnosing and fixing the source of vibration, but I'm not sure where my particular case falls.
I have both a '94 and a 2004 VN750, the latter to replace the former once I get some paint work done on it. One thing I've noticed though is that the '04 bike, while generally as smooth or smoother than the '94, vibrates a lot more than the '94 one, but only at engine RPMs over 3,000. Under that and it's fine, but once it hits 3K on the tach, something vibrates, seemingly primarily in the front right side of the bike but I haven't tracked it down yet.
Any suggestions? I can duplicate it on the centerstand so it's not something that requires resistance on the wheels. I'm hoping it's a frame or handlebar bolt somewhere, though they all seem pretty tight to me.
