New Bike Question

Just got a 2012 RGC. First Harley, anyway I have less than 200 miles on it and I am noticing a couple things.

First, unusual vibration a lack of power between 1700 and 1900 rpm's from 2nd gear on,

Tire vibration when tuning left or right over 30 mph.

Any idea's?

Thanks
Ron

They do vibrate, a lot. Its a massage feature.....

That new of a bike, contact the dealer, let them check it out. My 2012 RGC was a bitch to shift for the first couple hundred miles, but has since loosened up.

Didn't even notice your rpms. My bike doesn't like any gear besides first under 2k.

That's what I was thinking too but if it drops below 1700 it goes away. It's noticeable as I let up on the gas to slow down. Almost feels like its going to stall., Not during acceleration.
