I haven't had the chance to get on a Viking as yet but is the vibration bad enough that you find it to be a deal breaker or what?

The assumption or even FACT is that it's the engine mounts and with riding it will 'break in' the mounts, smoothing it all out. Hopefully that will be the case, keep us posted.

I took the grab bar out and it made mine 100% better. I installed new grab bars. What was left went away after breaking in

All I done was put two aftermarket grab handles on the front bar. I'm going to cut the mounts back into the body and redrill holes to mount the factory bar back in if I ever need to. But make the front dash clean with no bars sticking out when the bar is removed. I'll post a pic when finished.
