Vibration

Hi - 2000 K1200LT, 74K kilometers, I've only driven this bike 200 kilometers and I am noticing "vibration" in the drivers foot pegs sometimes when the rear wheel goes over cracks in the pavement, does not do it on big bumps, rear swing arm etc. seems tight - no play - never felt/noticed anything like this on the K1100. It seems to happen at city street speed - have not noticed it at highway speed. This bike is very smooth on rough pavement compared to my 92 K1100.

Re: Vibration

did you check rear shock, making sure it is tight?

Re: Vibration

Any tire wear could cause this. I'd be interested to know if it stops with new tires.
