Vibration in 6th gear

I have noticed since my bike was new that is has a vibration low pitched rumble in 6th gear. Same speed in 5th no noise. Put in 6th and you can hear and kinda feel it. Dealer said it was normal. It is a 2011 ultra. Has anyone else experienced this? Hope you can help and problem is inexpensive, Haha.
Thank you for your help.

What speeds are you putting into 6th gear? Lugging the motor will cause some unwanted noises not to mention it's not really good for the engine

Thank you for reply. It happens at 70 or 80. And it is mostly noticeable when you accelerate. Once YOU Get To Speed No Noise OR vibration. Kendall Johnson did some engine was ok. 124 now. It acted the same when it was stock though.
