Extreme vibration from Screamin' Eagle Heavy Breather Elite
This week I installed a new Rinehart head pipe, and Screaming' Eagle heavy breather elite on my 16 RGS. Today, I rode the bike to work and noticed that the very front of the air cleaner (towards the end of the filter) extremely vibrates at higher RPMs and 65+mph speeds. It vibrates so much in fact that I can clearly hear a buzzing sound coming from it over my pipes at highway speeds. I've checked all of the bolts and the hose clamp keeping the filter on, and everything is tightened down as they should be. I called my dealer today, and he stated this is normal with a twin cam motor, but I'm not buying it. I was just curious if this is normal, or if anyone has experience this with a heavy breather.
Just to be clear, the intake tube doesn't vibrate at all, it is just the very front half of the air filter.
As always, I appreciate the help.
