vubrations

I cant figure this out and dealer could not "feel" it.
When I do a slight swerve to the right of left, I feel a fine vibration in the handle bars. The farther I lean, the less I feel it. It does not take much, just a slight left or right swerve.
I am not overly worried about it, but it was not there a month ago..odd.

oh, I just noticed..vUbrations? hahahahah vibrations..oh.

How many miles on bike? Possible wheel bearings?

That's my guess. But it could be a tire, a out of balance tire, or a possible bent rim as well.

My friend had a 2013, had same thing, his actually made a noise now and again, and it was his wheel bearings, and it was brand new.

That was my first thought too, but at only 5000 miles? Mine showed the same symptoms at 12k and it was the tire.

I have a 13. Get a good noise and a small vibration out of front above 70
Started at about 5,000 miles. Goes away when leaning into a corner. I am sure it is the front wheel bearings. Taking it in as soon as riding season is over.

My 2013 RG Ultra had 5000 miles on it when I bought it. The tires would hum when you leaned it over and could feel it in the handlebar. Lived with until 15k miles. Put new tires on problem gone. Tires visually looked good before they were replaced.
