Ultra Vibration

I have a '16 RGU with 600 miles on it. Actually, its been like this since new. Vibration is noticeable at 65 mph and up. I suspect wheel balancing is required. Do they balance them at the factory as a wheel/tire assembly. What are the possible culprits?

My 16 RGS had a vibration at 80 mph, dealer rebalanced. I still wasn't happy so I used 'Ride-on' in the front tire and that smoothed it right out.

There are several things that could be the culprit and IMO it would be best to get it to the dealer to check for wheel bearings (front) and also the neck (triple tree) bearings as well. Hopefully, it will be something simple and quick.

Took it to the dealer and discovered that the front wheel bearings were dry. Glad I didn't ignore the issue.
