Vibrations felt through the seat

Following on from the "vibration through the handlebars" thread has anyone noticed any vibes through the seat? I have changed my seat to the TT touring trying to cure it but failed. Could it be the chain? Its not mega worn and has loads of adjustment left but its not new either? I'm now starting to think its the Bestrest BMW F800 GS Shock Bolt Support Bracket transmitting the vibes!! Has anyone else experienced this? I've had Ducatis and Buells so used to vibes, but never suffered anything like this before

Some vibes in the hands and feet, but not the butt.

Thanks again, I might swap back and see if there is a difference.
