My 2021 Africa Twin DCT, with about 4,000 miles, seems to be vibrating more…

It’s regularly serviced, not ridden very hard, never off road.
Lately, I think I feel somewhat more vibration in the foot pegs and handgrips.
It MAY be me just kind of neurotically over worrying about something that was always there,
as I do tend it that direction my my cycles (and not being very mechanically adept).
But I do wonder.
Any thoughts?

Thanks, as always, for any input,

Bruce Waltham, Ma.

the tyre thread is changing over time (miles) and this might lead to some vibration… i had this on the stock tyres after around 5oookm, changed to pirelli str, which was a disaster after just 3000km,…. but now happily riding my second set of continental tkc 70‘s without any problem …

At 4k I changed to Alpina tubeless and Continental TA3. Wow.....just did a road trip and very smooth, handles more like a sport tour, other than needing a lot more push to turn in. 21 AT DCT.
