Two things too many riders do; over use of the rear brake and lug the engine. When under way, revs should be no less than 2500. Our bikes underwent very extensive development and testing until they got it right. Changing sprockets to lower revs will work the engine harder and more than likely lower fuel mileage. Re vibration; Hey, its a big V-twin! If you want smooth, trade your Vic for a multi cylinder, preferably a six cylinder Goldwing. Rev are your friend, especially when working the twisties.
