Yesterday I took my C past 80 for the first time. It had been over 800 miles and just hadn't done it. As soon as it hits 80 though, there is a lot of vibration. My last C was like this until past 100. I have no idea why it vibrates so much, the only solution I can think of is all the electronics I have put under the seat, which fills the gap between the seat and frame, and now transfers the vibration. I don't know...

Are you jetted ???
These bikes "vibrate" more when running fat
If it's just on high speed runs maybe your too fat on the main.
Also check your oil level.
Mine shakes more if I am a little over full or nearer the top mark.
It smoothes out if I am midway between the marks.
Must be the sump is that sensitive to windage that the extra 8 oz.
wraps up around the crank.
Spencer :twisted:
