              Getting worse, makes it difficult, like something is changing, if it was missmatched pistons or rods, you'd think it would remain the same.

              Got a mate with a TL you can test ride, just to see if it is typical V2 vibes you can feel?

              What bar ends have you got on it? Also under the top triple clamp are rubber mounted weights, are they there?

              Ever had the clutch apart or the clutch cover off? I :dunno, just fishing.

                  I would have said bar ends, but that wouldn't transfer to the pegs. And if it does it at standstill it's not going to be tyres or chain... so head scratching time

                  Go over the whole bike and look for any loose fasteners, especially engine mount bolts... Good luck, keep us posted!

                      wow! Well that is a little scary... welcome

                      I was thinking bar ends also... if you get it diagnosed, please reply so others who end up with this problem can get help

                      If it makes you feel better my hands used to fall asleep 100% of the time but it went away with time

                            glad theres nothing wrong with it.

                            i've never had the sleeping hands and feet after 100 k's though.
