yeah, my 2012 does that, but not sure if it is like yours? I think it is a matter of perception too...you might tune into that vibration and say, "wtf"? and I might not even notice...just blend in with all the other vibration that motor making. Thing is you got on your buddies and his was doing the exact same thing, so prob same thing as all others and there is nothing abnormal about yours? prob just tripping....there are things spinning inside your motor and mechanisms etc and when you have clutch engaged in nuetral, there is prob a deal going on where its loose or something?...Ive experienced that on different bikes. Man i love my bike and think it is freakn awesome!! it is everything...performance, comfort, style, price...it is incredible to me. most bad a#$ thing ive ever owned or borrowed. Dude, if it has some issue, as long as not something horrible like gear strips or valves knock...then im gonna look over it cause im gonna look at everything they got right. man, i put aftermarket rear sets on my bike cause the shifter had a lot of play in it and when I took off stock parts i was amazed at how cheap they were. i was a little disappointed that they thought that play was acceptable. i stepted on that shifter hard enough, i could bend it or snap it off. I could almost bend rear sets with my hands. Thing is..I fixed that and now perfect. I know they cut cornners to save cost, ect. I gotta check on that oil burning thing....cause im not one to check the oil all the time....I will check on that for you...? I would want to know too. Anyway enjoy your bik....you can always find something wrong if you look hard enough. that goes with anything or anybody....if you look for the flaws, you will find them.
