2016 kawasaki ninja 1000 buzzing and vibrating after first oil change.

Hello

yesterday I performed my first 600 miles oil change, I used Kawasaki oil 10w40 non synthetic) and Kawasaki filter. After oil change my bike started buzzing and vibrating in steering wheel and seat. Vibrating is so noticeable that my arms are getting numb after 5 minutes of ridding. Before oil change I rode it for 20 miles and bike was very smooth. Oil level is fine and chain has proper tension. I couldn't find answer on any forum yet. I fallowed brake in period according by manual. Any ideas?

Thanks

That's weird. So, the only thing you did was change the oil? Or did you do other things?

Does the buzzing change if you take in the clutch or if you open up the throttle?

Just oil change, there is some buzzing during idling but it is stronger during acceleration (open up the throttle). Maybe loose fairings do that but I checked all of them, they look fine.

Hmm, how's it revving in neutral? And does it make a difference whether or not you've got the clutch in?

If it's not the clutch basket or farings, then it may just be a coincidence. In which case it'll take more effort too locate.

maybe ambient temperature can affect vibrations??( found this info on other forum lol) I live in Illinois and that day was the first warm and humid day since I have bike, before that temp was around 60F to 65 F and I did not fell any vibrations, when I changed oil and when I first felt these vibration it was a warm day around 75F maybe more. I read on other forums and I watched videos that kawasaki 1000 has some vibration, and this is major complain, but in my bike before that oil change there was no vibration at all. Do you guys have any vibrations in your bikes?
