Default 107 Milwaukee-Eight Vibrations @ higher speeds

Anybody else out there having high speed vibration problems with the 2017 Limited with Milwaukee 8 engine? I have a vibration that tears my body up. Evan the handlebars vibrate at higher speeds!
I should have refined this to a BODY Killer VIBRATION some where between 2500-3000+++++ RPM. It is not bad at first (10-15 minutes) After 50-100 miles you want to throw the bike off a bridge!

Mine did too until I loosened the entire exhaust front to back, ran the bike for a few minutes and then re-tightened. Still some buzz, but nothing like it was before.

Mine vibrates in the 3k rpm range. It is worse under light loads & is intermittent. Sometimes it vibrates badly & other times its very smooth. It will do it in all the gears, The dealer says all is normal after some extended road tests but I don't agree. My 2015 was smoother. It has improved as the miles are put on so i'm thinking it may be ok in time. 2800 on it now.
