Vibration

My 1000r2 seems to vibrate through the bars when accelerating ......its nothing serious and it runs just fine
I am refreshing the engine over winter and wondering if it is a good idea to have the crank checked maybe balanced
Recommendations on who would be best for the work and rough costs please

Re: ZRX 1200R Meets Z900 RS Cafe

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
Overall though everyone agreed that the best bike there was the zrx1100
