Following my post on July 25th. I've since bought a V85 and, much to my dismay, it vibrates everywhere. Pegs, then the seat from 3800 - 5000 rpm and the handlebars above about 3200 rpm. I've just done the first service at 709 miles and adjusted the valves. They were out, but not by a large amount: L Cyl Int: .006 Exh .008 R Cyl: Int .008 Exh .006 Adjusted to spec: Int .004 and Exh .006. I'm thinking that the US bikes have had some changes made to the fueling compared to the Euro pre-production model that I rode, which was very smooth. I've tamed the seat vibration a bit by using an Air Hawk and I've just added some 1 lb bar end weights to try to quell the bar vibration -- waiting for the oil filter cover crush washer to arrive tomorrow before I can button it up to test ride. Also of note, my suspension is much less compliant than the pre-prod model that only had 200+ miles on it at the time I test rode it.
