Well the poor old thing is still going
I have about 3000 miles on it now since it was reassembled.
I reported earlier, that I was having an annoying vibration in the 4500-5500 RPM range. After reading a couple threads about v-strom vibration here and elsewhere, I began to wonder if my engine mounts were causing it. As can be seen, I don't have crash bars or anything, but I did have the right side V mount off.
So I loosed and retorqued it and presto, the annoyance is gone. It does still have the usual rumble, but it no longer bothers my hands and feet.
Next week we are off on a trip to Montana, South Dakota and Wyoming.
