Right Hand Vibration

Hi All;

My 2006 LT has a vibration in the right hand grip around 3000 RPM. Now I've had K1200RS's in the past which always had a wicked vibration in the right grip at 4000 RPM... The conventional wisdom for the RS was to swap out the exhaust to basically anything after-market..

What is the conventional wisdom for this problem on the LT? BTW this is no way near as bad as the RS!

I don't know about conventional wisdom, but my smart a__ wisdom sez avoid 3000 RPM's.

You should never see that range except through acceleration to a good cruising RPM. Most of them have a bad vibe at 43- 4800.
