Default vibration

this is all new to me but here we go, I bought an 07 jackpot three weeks ago great bike but there seems to be a little excessive vibration which gets worse the longer I ride. The first time I noticed it I went back to the dealer they found bad plug wires and a wire that was grounding out and the back cylinder was not fireing any ideas what it could be now. thanks for any help

Maybe it's a bad ignition coil. A lot of times they tend to malfunction when they're good and hot.

Sounds like you have some crud in your tank that gets moved around a lot while you have a lot of gas and plugs up your fuel line when the gas gets low. You should have a micro screen in the connector for your fuel line fron the tank. The screen is most likely the problem but the only way to find out for sure is to pul your tank, dump it out and remove the valve. Once you do that you may want to get some alcohol and swish about 1/4 of the bottle around in your tank. Once that's done repeat a couple more times to make sure you got all the crud out. Use the last of the alcohol to flush out the valve and the screen.

This should do the trick. If you want to avoid the crappy gas try to go to newer gas stations or stations with newer storage tanks. If you see a fuel truck filling the tanks at a gas station don't get gas there for at least an hour after the truck leaves. When they pump in new gas all the crud in the bottom of the tank gets stirred up; some of that ends up in cars and bikes.

Also check your fuel lines for damage and make sure they aren't collapsing. If you are in an area that uses E85 ethanol you'll have to try to avoid those stations. E85 can mess up fuel lines and fuel pumps on vehicles that are not flex fuel ready.

I just wanted to add to this thread instead of starting a new one.
I have an 03 Vegas and I'm having the same kind of problem during cruising around 70-80mph. Funny thing is bike starts super smooth but after 15-20 minutes of riding say 75mph it starts vibrating but if I come to a stop just for a minute and go back to the 75 it becomes smooth again for 15-20 minutes before it starts vibrating again.
I rode for almost 300 miles yesterday on wide open roads so I had plenty of opportunities to test it.
And to ammo hub, I do have a brand spanking new fuel pump on my bike with only 500 miles on it.
Also I changed my oil friday so new oil too.
I got the bike about 6 months ago and I have every single service record done by Vic dealership and used Vic oil so I'm using vic oil.

I would have your fuel pressure checked. It should be a steady 49psi.

One of the best mods I have done is replacing the OEM plug wires. I got some from Witchdoctor. Best $33 I ever spent.

So how do one checks the fuel pressure since bike needs to run for at least 15 minutes @ 75mph?
And since coming to a stop briefly fixes the issue by the time it gets hooked up to the machine pressure would be back to normal. ( I'm only guessing since vibration goes away after a brief stop)
