My bike has been doing the exact same thing for quite some time. I took it to the dealer and had the Service Advisor ride it. He came back and said there wasn't anything wrong with it.....and that Harley's shake. I told him, I know Harley's shook, this isn't a shake. Its a vibration. But he either wouldn't acknowledge it or didn't think it was anything to be worried about.

Let me know what your dealer tells you. I'll be very interested.

The dealers aren't going to acknowledge anything but the obvious, for fear of some kind of liability or having to admit fault. If your head light falls out...hey, looks like your headlight fell out...we can fix that for ye. Then they take it back to the "forbidden" land and you don't know what they do if anything. They sure as hell don't want anyone to see anything in the back. I wonder what they have to hide? Could be nothing but, it sure makes me suspicious.

Mine started vibrating similar to yours. Found out center was broke out of front mount. New mount, no more vibration. I'm due to change it out again as i noticed vibration coming back after 17000 miles on last one.

Only time my 02 ultra with 85K on it vibrates is when sitting still at an ideal. Once I take off it is smooth.

+3 on the engine mount. It's a common problem.
