I need HELP!  I had a 2006 1100 Silverado, loved the way it sat and rode except for the buzzy feel at 70 mph.  After about 40 min my hand went num.  I lost the bike in a fire.  I some what want another one.  I would like to know is this normal about the buzzy feel on these bikes?  Or is it possible the carbs weren't Sync right?

Carbs out of sync will cause vibration. I've road hours at a time at 70/80mph and wont say I had no problem

with comfort but It wasn't bad. My problem with numbness is from carpel tunnel and seems to only be a problem at 15 to 30 minutes

into the ride then it goes away.

Thanks for reply.  I guess I will consider to getting another V-STAR 1100.

I really do love the way it seats.
