My 1000r2 seems to vibrate through the bars when accelerating ......its nothing serious and it runs just fine

it was my z1000r in the practical classic article and i rode the cafe as well ........ the cafe was faster , better handling , better braking .......oh I could go on and on ........ but I was happy to get back on my bike
