new theory

i talked to a mech with a good amount of exp with 950's and he thought the vibe problem might be related to an overly dainty initial engine break in. maybe a top end job ???
i pulled off both tanks and went looking for missing bolts and exhaust leaks and found a missing bottom bolt on the left tank
after replacing the tkc80 on the front with a scorp to eliminate it as a vibe source it feels a little better and the "oh crap this thing is gonna fall apart feeling" is less severe but still more than any other 950 i have ridden
on a side note the amount of seized and wrong hardware and deeply buried filth on this bike continues to make everything harder and take way longer than it should ......
