So I kinda hate winter, cuz after that many months of not riding you kinda forget what the bike does and doesn't do. What sounds are normal, what vibrations are normal.
Right now I'm dealing with a weird vibration. It seems like for one the whole bike is vibrating more at highway speeds then it did before, and its like a... higher pitched vibration. If that makes any sense to anyone else. And weirdly enough I notice it more on the right highway footpeg.
Now of course I did a few things this winter/spring. New Metz tires, greased the spline, RR. Today I just drilled the baffles, but I noticed this before that, so they are innocent.
First thing I did trying to track it down was tighten all the bolts on my highway bar, and highway pegs. Checked the torque on the front wheel. Today I changed the oil, but I haven't gotten it up to speed yet to see if it may have smoothed out the engine or anything on that end.
I hate unknown issues.
