    Evening all any 2015 owners have an bouncy dash? Mine seems to wobble and shake over every bump as though the mounting frame is too flexible.

    Curiously, I noticed this for the first time yesterday, after almost 8000 miles. However, it's nowhere near as bad as you describe.

    14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
    18 VFR800X - 16,000 miles
    01 VFR800 Fi-1 - 0 miles (yet)

    Thanks skids for me I think the front end is a bit harsh feels like it crashes over bump's and that makes the dash wobble, so some professional help for setting up the front end I hope will sort both

    I find the display does seem to wobble a bit, yeah.. not disturbingly so, but I do notice it. I've always assumed the wobble is down to intentional vibration isolation that's not entirely effective.
    Having had the front end set up to remove that harshness, I can't say there's been much difference in that respect.

    I had never noticed a problem until a couple of weeks ago when after having a new front tyre fitted I found that at 65+mph the Dash and Mirrors were jiggling about. Returned the front wheel to the Tyre Service where they re-balanced it and all now back to normal with just a little movement.

    Not noticed it on mine, but I do balance my own wheels so no massive vibration anywhere.

    So following on from my original post and due to knocking my n/s indicator loose I took the dash and panels off to see what I had broken, first of all the panels are very thin and mounting clips and lugs fragile so be gentle when taking these panels off, I bonded the retaining clip for the indicator back on not pretty but should hold and test fitted GPS and screen mounts the frame work although strong enough is springy and the added weight of the new parts will make this worse, in a attempt to stiffen things up I'm going to try and make up some support brackets to tie the frame to the chassis this I hope will stiffen things up.
