Glad you solved it but I'd be looking for a new
dealer because they should know enough about
these bikes to know just what to look for and
they should have found the problem.

From the Clymer Manual;

.. apply Loctite 243 to the threads, tighten the front engine mount bolt to 60 - 70 ft.lb (82 - 95 Nm).

I just went and checked mine and sure enough it was loose.

It took about 3/4 of a turn to tourqe it up again.

I'm about to go for a ride so I'll see if there's any reduction in vibration. I would expect there to be some.

Thankyou Ron for bringing this to our attention.

I'll make this thread a sticky as it may be a common issue for rubbermount owners.

Ok, just got back from my test ride.

Noticably reduced vibration through foot pegs and bars.

Mirrors stay clearer.
