    Getting fixed next week

    I ran this problem past my independent wrench and he pretty much confirms all that's been discussed on this thread. I think I'll leave this one for him to fix.

    Throttle Body Sync is my guess

    Change your air filter, plugs (make sure they're gapped correctly) and a TBS. I have a single spark 03 R1150R - When my bike gets buzzy, all of the above usually cures it.

    plug gap?

    From your description of the problem... after a scheduled maintenance, and poor quality petrol isn't the problem, I would take a quick look at the gap on your plugs. (I have an 03 R single spark and...

    Yes, guessing is still needed

    It's not that difficult

    $160 for the assembly sounds too steep.

    A few weeks ago, I fixed a system case by replacing the red tab locking assembly. I bought the replacement unit (about $50-60 from the dealer), followed the...

    I ended up with a custom seat

    A couple of years ago I tried a strap-to-the-seat gel pad. It felt great but it raised my head just above the OEM touring windshield, and the buffeting was too much to handle on multi-day trips.
