    Who needs a survey? if you try the fix and it doesn't work then it may be worthwhile!

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    All comments aside, as a 2015 is in still in warranty? In addition as you've only just bought it, the dealer has certain obligations. Could you reject it as faulty and buy another? Ok, might have more miles on it but at least it would be rideable.

    This is an old problem/topic. A few years ago, there were reports of some people taking their Rockets back to dealer, for vibrations, and all the dealers were doing to solve the problem was adjusting all the slack out of the clutch cable. Would keep the customer happy, until either the lifter piece would break/wear out, or the clutch would start slipping. Just sayin......

    NO the clutch must be adjusted correctly so there is some play so you dont burn up the lifter parts mines been that way for 24000 miles

    That's what I was trying to imply. You must have free play in the clutch cable. "Adjusted properly":)
