I can feel lots vibration coming from the foot pegs on my 2013 RMZ450. I have felt it since day 1, just seems a little excessive to me. I should also note that I have a Rekluse Clutch installed on my bike that has been on the bike since day 1 aswell, which chatters during initial acceleration. Could it be my clutch causing this problem, is it something else or is it normal?

I can't speak for the 13 but I know when I got my 08 new, it vibrated significantly more than the 06 Honda I owned at the time.  I still have it and with approximately 60 hours on it, it still runs strong.  I also have a 12 kx 450 with 40 hours and it is definitely smoother.  Its impossible to know with out actually seeing your bike but a little "extra" vibration does seem to be a Suzuki trait.  I know at least one of the magazines mentioned it in the 2013 shootouts.

I've got a 08 and dont notice mine vibrating at all.infact i jumped on a 2010 crf 250 the other day and noticed it had more vibration than my bike.I wonder if its the crank being out of balance.
