Hopefully we will find out, soon.
The only time I remember pushing a bike in the last 57 years was due to running a 2 stroke jetted for altitude at close to sea level.

Absolutely no vibration at sustained WOT until a hole burned into the piston.

I removed the bars and re-installed them paying attention to the torque. They were VERY tight. on removal. Tightened to correct torque and I have to say the vibration felt through the bars and the 'buzzing' of my mirrors has dropped dramatically. Good call all who said retrace what you did, I did not think of the bar removal. But, I still 'feel' like the vibration is more than before,,, maybe I'm just more aware.

The go back suggestion was from harley506d in post 5
You can give him reputation points by clicking on the scales in the top right corner of his post to recognize a good suggestion.
You will give him ~1% of the value of your points.
So, ~643 points added to his current 3,020,621.
