...the vibration of the pegs is so incredibly violent that after 20 seconds or so I lifted my feet off and just pressed my knees against the sides of the tank.
Check the speedo cable connection at the hub. They come loose and make the speedo waver.
u were way out there on turnpike and i81...did u ride the turnpike ( ka dink, ka dink, ka dink)...not surprise but glad u found that tormenting sound ..i once had my rear lamp assembly loosen up while riding to work one day...luckilyit didn't fall off as it would had been embarrassing to say the least..kinda like losing your ass while riding down the road and shit falling off and getting crushed by the cars behind you..anyway what u do, about a 250 -300 mile ride this weekend ..sounds like u had a good time and were u please with the bike overall performance? ...what was your average rate of speed?
.... It was in between on 30 West that I had the Enfield flat-out at 90 indicated. It was not a pleasant experience, and despite the flogging I was still left in the dust. I am much happier at 65-75, although interesting to note - if you flip the passenger pegs down and put your feet on them, you can lay on the tank and squeeze out a few more MPH on the top end. I would not recommend doing this. ...
I was having the same problem with the speedo going erratic after sitting on a steady 120kph over a few miles. I disconnected the speedo drive at the wheel and put a small amount of oil and WD40 inside the hub drive. Haven't had a problem since.Cheers
