I thought the rubber dampers were mostly a problem on older bikes that sat a long time. My '02 runs just like it did 13 years and 84,000 miles ago. I have heard that some of the balancers were not installed properly at the factory. But it doesn't seem likely it ran 13,000 miles that way. I wonder if one of the cam chains could have jumped a tooth. 13,000 miles is about when the cam chain tensioners went on mine.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
