Rebel 500 Vibration at Highway Speeds (50-70 mph or 80-115 km/h)
First post - I'm looking to buy a nice beginner urban cruiser, and I'm strongly considering the Rebel 500 ABS for purchase soon to take advantage of winter promotions. Since I live in Montreal, a test ride would be impossible this time of year.
In my research, one common complaint was the vibration of the bike at "legal highway speeds", which then disappears again at higher speed.
Would I be correct in thinking that this is an issue with aerodynamics? Has anyone attempted/found a solution (windshield, fairing addition - perhaps in front of that wide radiator)?
Thanks in advance.
