Hi all Iv just got myself a beautiful vz800 intruder on a 63 plate with 9200 on the clock I have been out on it a few times and have a couple of questions.
First question when the bike gets into the higher rev range it vibrates like washing machine through the seat, bars and pegs basically the whole bike I have checked everything is tight and the tyres are good nothing is wrong with it apart from the servicing it has full history but it looks like its never had the valves adjust could this be why it vibrates so much. My last 4 bikes where Vtwins and none of them vibrated this much I had 2 SV650's and 2 Ducati's but none of them where this like this. If I keep the bike below 3000 rpm (that's a guess as theres no rev counter) it's ok ish at 50 in 5 its perfect but at 70 or higher it's that bad that it makes my vision funny surly this isn't right. Any help would be much appreciated thanks

Make sure the tyre pressures are bang on, then get the front wheel balanced at a shop, shouldn't cost much if you remove it yourself.

I had a serious vibration problem at speeds above thirty just after changing the front tire.  Took the wheel off at home and realized I had left a pair of pliers between the tire and tube.  Easy fix.

Nice one Nige.   This is good information now, for anyone else with the same problem.
Windscreens never even entered my thoughts tbh.  
I'm sure I read you can get deflectors fitted somewhere, around the fork area ...?  to assist with screens.
