Bounce

Anyone else have a bounce or vibration when going between 30-40mph? Mine does even with the clutch pulled in coasting.

I let the dealer know at my 1000 mile service and they noticed it to and wanted to keep it an extra day to figure it out. Went back to get it and was told there's nothing wrong and what I'm feeling is normal. So is this normal or should I get it looked at again?

Am experiencing something similar with our new 500. Nasty vibration coming thru, but is not consistent. Suspect it is the front suspension. At times the front suspension seems to jam. So the vibration is the road surface not being absorbed.

I've noticed an odd harmonic between the front and rear suspension at that speed that could be called bounce. I wonder if changing the preload on the rear springs would help. Though it does seem to be mostly from the front end. I don't encounter it often.

When it happens it feels like I'm riding on a rough road.

Yup, that's the feeling.
