Have a small issue with my 749s, at low rpm, moving off the faring and mirrors vibrate and rattle so bad that it sounds like the bike is going to fall apart, I have torn it down to the frame and reassy with correct position and tension, it seem that the ram air tubes transfer the vibration to the air box which intensify,s the noise, above 4k the bike settles down and is very refined and quiet, but below that rpm and on light acceleration its very unrefined. I have had a few duc,s before and I know they are not happy at low speed but this seems to be rather noisy. the bike is un modified completely original including exhaust. Any ideas?

Hi, I'm a newbie when it comes to these bikes. But in the fortnight that I've had mine, I've replaced all the old D3 Dzus fittings, and replaced rubber grommets. Like the ones in the front of the nose fairing. Now vibration free. Oh, and a quick once over with allen keys to ensure that anything bolted on is tight, and has a bolt. I had a few missing allen bolts. The previous owner had the bike serviced regularly, but didn't take real care of it in-between services.
