I guess even a Tiger could use a mud bath from time to time!

That would be nice, but Triumph USA long ago stopped putting any effort into RAT or the associated RAT Raids.

Yeah, that's my friend Robin. Robin and I, together with our friend Tito, were the original organizers of the Bennington Triumph Bash. Robin and Tito have since moved away (though Robin and her husband, Paul, have ridden up from Alabama each year except last year; they'll be back this year); I've carried on the BTB with help from a couple of the guys who've been there every year.

And by the way, the first year of the BTB, we had a guy ride out from Washington, Seattle area I believe. On a Bonnie. We've had folks from the UK, and last year we had a guy from Australia who was riding around North America on his Bonnie. It's a fun event; great people.

I just had the 500 mile service completed a couple days ago and have picked up an extremely noticeable vibration in the handle bars. There is a also a slight tingle coming through the pegs as well. I first noticed it on the way home from the dealership.

I know a part of the service was to re-torque everything. Could these two events be related? Nothing else has changed.

The dealer is two hours away and I'd prefer (if possible) to take care of this myself.

Is the vibration speed or rpm related?

It's difficult to say. I just did a 50 mile loop at 60 mph in 6th gear and it was pretty bad after only about 20 minutes. In fact, I had to stop halfway through to allow the feeling to return to my fingers.

I've tried two different sets of gloves with no changes. Oddly enough, my padded textile winter gloves were actually a bit worse than my thin leather ones.

Did they update the ignition map perhaps ?

I've noticed an increase in vibs on my bike following the 12k service. I believe they updated the map at that time.

That is odd...I just had the 6k and it actually feels smoother. They did update the map though.

Are downloads of the shop manual available anywhere? I would like to bring it along on tour but the paper version takes up too much room. Electrons are just so much more compact.

I noticed an increase when I added the Triumph crash bars. I have retorqued everything. Now strangely enough I did turn up the handlebars ( no risers yet) and really noticed the vibration. I didn't like the handlebars turned up (will be getting some risers soon) so I turned the, back down. The vibration lessened considerably. May want to give a slight adjustment to see...doesn't cost anything to experiment with.

Maybe check the chain to see if somehow they managed to adjust it (very) incorrectly.

Chain too tight can cause a vibration
