Question 2012 HRC Clutch Vibration

I have noticed that in neutral and my engine idling there is a vibration and slight sound to my bike that stops when I pull the clutch in. You can feel it with your hands on the bars. After you notice it you can hear a change when you pull in the clutch and it stops vibrating. The parts manager at Southern just bought a 2012 also and I had taken my bike up there for them to check it out and he (the parts manager a buddy of mine) asked the tech to check it out and he said that it was an "acceptable" characteristic. After I had taken the bike there and was told this my friend (the parts manager) bought his and when I went up there to get something and walked outside to check out his bike and he said check this out and started the bike a it had the same exact vibration and it stopped when you pull in the clutch. He talked to a guy from Honda and asked him about it and he said the guy told him that they were aware of it and that if there are any problems that arise Honda will be very proactive. I love my bike but the oil consumption and this clutch issue bother me. Am I asking for too much to want a brand new bike to not have acceptable characteristics like vibration in the clutch and burning oil? Is anyone else having this vibration and what do you guys think about the term acceptable characteristic?

No. I have rode all my life. It's not even close to my first new 1000rr. I stopped riding for a few years after a bad wreck but decided to get back into riding and Honda has always been my favorite on dirt and street, so I went and looked at a ZX10 and a R1 and was gonna check them all out but when I walked into Honda I just bought the HRC right then. That being said I want my bike to be rite. I understand that a few years back there was a problem with the clutch on the 1000RR and they were bursting. I just want to know if all the 2012's clutches are vibrating and the engines burning oil.

I think it's a reasonable question considering past blades. But, I also think we can over scrutinize things and make something out of nothing.

That being said, take it to the dealer and have the shop look at it. They shouldn't charge you.

I took it to the shop. That's where the term acceptable characteristic came from. That's what they called it.

It is not 2008.

You know what they say, "If it's not broken, don't fix it"
As of now, mine does not have any issues, I'll let ya know if anything comes up.

I would appreciate it bro. It's not a huge vibration. It's just when you're sitting in neutral and the clutch is let out there is a vibration and you can hear and feel it stop when you pull the clutch in.
