A month ago I bought a 2017 RGS with 4500 miles. I demo'd a 2018 SG, but really loved how the RGS handled. I have only put 150 miles on it, but am having some reservations.
My concern/complaint is how badly it shakes when I am idling. I have been told all about the A engine issues and that the way the front engine mount is designed, the engine is loose, therefore the shaking. I was hoping to get some input from some long time RG lovers. Is this something to be concerned about? Should it be checked by the dealer or is this typical RG behavior? It smooths out immediately when on throttle, but is embarrassing at stop.
I love how it sounds and how it rides, but is this strong shaking normal?
I am already fully involved in customizing it to fit me. Just bought a 14 inch windscreen, rear highway bar and saddlebag bars. I was going to purchase low/med Apes and a back rest this weekend. I have chosen a ghost paint airbrush design (estimated cost of $2k to get it done.) I don't want to keep pouring money into making it my own if I have to live with this shaking. I really hate it.
If it is normal, can anything be down to fasten it down any? Soften the shaking with a new motor mount, change the bushings, tighten the risers, check the torque? I don't know. Maybe some duct tape.
Any advice would be appreciated!!
