Vibration on 2008 carburetor model Bonnie

If I rev over 5000 in any gear I get a vibation through the handlebars making the mirrors useless. The engine also sounds a bit harsher. It is not shaking the bike to bits but I certainly would not like to ride far in the 5000 rev area. I have the off road silencers fitted with the air correction system removed and jetted to suit by the dealer. It is also fitted with a 18 tooth sproket. Has anyone else experienced this and if so what is the problem as it should rev to 7000 with no problem.

Hey Bob I have run the interstate at between 80 and 85 miles per hour for over two hours at a time and have not experienced said problem. My bonny has also been rejetted and has the off road pipes. I do still have the air correction system and stock sprockets. I would contact Destination motorcycles As they have the best tech staff around.

i had a vibration up in the 7000 rpm range-turned out it was a chain vibration i adjusted it to the right specs and it never hapened again-also may i say that the t100 engine sure can take a beating-i flogged the crap outa mine doing 189 kph for 10 km and it never missed a beat-mind you i was crappin my self .
