Hi people
I have a 2018 bike and took her out for a long ride yesterday. I've noticed a lot of vibrations in the foot pegs and a little in the handle bars.  Anyone else with this issue or is it normal. Thanks in advance.

How many miles have you done on your new bike?  My 2018 vibrated (more like a buzz) for the first 200 miles or so and then smoothed out - I can only imagine it will get better as the engine loosens up.  These engines are very tight from new.

Hi
I've done 420miles so far. Hoping it sorts itself out. Told my dealer about it and He's going to have a look at first service. I can't be dealing with the vibrations tho. It's making my hands and feet go numb. Lol. Might have to look at other bikes

it really shouldn't be that bad - I came from a Yamaha MT-09 Tracer and that vibrated like hell, that was the reason I traded it for the Kawasaki.  Prior to the Tracer I had a Triumph Explorer 1200 which was TOO smooth, to the point of being boring!  (it was also very top heavy and cumbersome).  To be honest, I've not found a bike that doesn't vibrate (apart from the Explorer) a bit.

Have to say my new to me 2013 vibrates through the pegs too. Not handlebars tho. Had a zx9r before that was a lot smoother. Give the z the beans and it's very apparent. I don't think any things wrong on mine it's just the way it is.
Let us know what dealer says tho as if it's something I can sort then I'd do it a it's a bit annoying.

my 2017 with 1200 miles did have a vibration through the seat at around 6500 revs , since changing my seat this has reduced noticeably , never had any vibes through the bars or the foot rests , as far as I know the footrest brackets are mounted on rubber so don't think you should be getting any vibes from them. i notice all little vibes , after coming off a k 1600 gt , no vibes at all , excellent bike but way too heavy for me !!

It would be worth while at the first service if the dealer loosened off all the engine mounting bolts and then re-torqued them back up.
