Anyone with 2018 have excessive vibe issues? I just bought a 2018 1290 R a few days ago. I was loving the bike up to around 140 miles. Then, I got a tyre puncture. I brought it to the dealer to have the tyre replaced. When I took the bike out of the shop, I noticed excessive vibes, so I brought it back. they re-balanced the tyre, but Im still having crazy vibes around 5k in 4th and other places.

When I ride and pull the clutch in, the vibes stop, and the wheel feels fine rolling along. What the heck could have happened? I now have 500 miles on the bike and I am super bummed. It was shaping up to be my favorite bike ever, now I don't even want to get on it. :(
