If anyone is interested in this, I took the two bolts out from the exhaust-to-frame mounts, lowest point of the bike nearest to the rear, and put a couple rubber washers between the exhaust mount and the frame itself. I can't say this has alleviated the issue but it's noticeably improved. Something to consider.

Now that I have a couple hundred miles under my belt on my '04, I'm noticing similar vibrations as described above. Even affects the mirrors. Only seems to get bad beyond shift rpm.. I'll look into those frame bolts when I get the chance.. any other ideas?

I noticed that the part where the pipes connect to the bike next to the actual tail end are not screwed on they are just up against the mounting bracket very tightly. It’s about 1/4 to halfway up the pipes from the tail end. I find this unusual. Did you also put rubber here as well? If you did where did you get it bc this would get super hot from the pipes whereas I suspect where you stated you put them was where the mounting bracket connected to the bike. I can send pics if it’s not clear
