If the tires have a lot of miles and are cupped, changing pressure could cause the vibration. That's what happened to mine this spring when I took it out for the first time. A new set of Metz 880's took care of that little problem.

The miles are getting up there on thise ires, especially since you rode them underinflated for so long. Are they cupped?

Tires have app. 6,700 miles before i rose the air pressure!!!!
That's WHY they're cupped, lol... :wink:
Yep, only fix for that now is new rubber. Keep the pressure at 38-40 psi. The owners manual psi is far too low. 8)

Chicago,
That's a shocker! The manual is wrong at 33? Should front AND back be 38 to 40?

Not the only fix... I rode all day long on a stretch of road we call Red Bluff Road, a old logging road, that follows a river.
My friend was on a Moto-Guzzi trying prove he could lose me. At the end of the day, no more cupping. I run 40psi front and back. 1800C
No problems since.
