Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires unbalanced, worn or damaged.
2. Eng ine/ transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain badly worn or links tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect/poorly tuned engine
7. Internal engine problem.
8. Broken frame
Good luck

SOURCE: vibration in the handlebar around

It's hard to say in your situation, as to the vibration as Harleys have a vibration, so it is a question of is it a severe vibration or is it the normal H-D vibration?

Excessive vibration on my Dyna

17 years is a long time for engine rubbers on a v twin. But if the vibration is only in the handlebars, you might want to fit some heavier handlebar end weights. They are there to absorb vibration(they act as dampers.) But, if the vibration is in the engine, it may be worth checking the ignition timing. On a Big V the ignition only needs to be out by a small amount to set up a noticeable vibration.

for starters, make sure tires are properly balanced and inflated to proper tire pressure. as for the vibration i the pegs, that is normal. if it's excessive, make sure subframe boltsare tight. gixxers are know to lose one or two ( locktite on the bolts is very helpful). good bar ends are very helful in reducing the vibration in the handlebars.

My '73 Norton 850 Commando handlebars vibrates at idle.

Hi pl427
I love these bikes. Vertical twins of this era vibrate, is just how it goes. Engine design was simple back then and no counter shafts are used, so there is a degree of vibration at low revs produced by 2 big bore pistons that will make the handle bars get a real bogey on at idle.  If the carbs are out of sync,or need a tune, then you may have a lazy clyinder at idle that is producing the vibration also. Not sure if your bike has them, but some have rubber bushes that mount the handlebars. These can get sloppy with age and may need to be replaced. Another trick if the vibration is anoying you is to mix some lead shot with silicon and fill the ends of the handle bars up to "weight" them and reduce the vibration.
click here to see one walking on its center stand. Notice the way everything is vibrating on this old girl.
