Play in handlebars
« on: July 13, 2014, 03:10:27 pm »
Hey guys.

Just happened to notice this today. If I lift up while holding on to both hand grips(in my case I'm standing beside bike) there's what seems to be quite a bit of play. At least 1/4" up and down. Is this by design?

Not noticed any play in the handlebars.  Must be something wrong as said above.

I have the same amount of play I pointed it out to the service manager and he said this was normal and was just play in the rubber mountings a new one did have some play as well but not as much as mine.

Thanks for replying
I was able to check with a friend who has a 2013 and he reported the same play and suggested it's by design to reduce vibration via rubber mounts. 

Dealer confirmed the other new bikes on the floor have the same play and related to the rubber mounts.
