Default vibration while in neutral

I notice this when I roll up to a stoplight, shift into neutral, and let out the clutch. It only happens while the clutch is out. I can feel an additional vibration in both the grips and on my footpegs. Is this just the transmission doing its thing, or should I be concerned about something else?

Thanks!

I've got exactly the same issue, supposedly it's normal, but it started happening out of the blue with my bike. Would love if someone could tell me otherwise.

How long have you had the bikes for? You might just be getting more used to them and noticing new things. I know the more I was on or around my bike the more I noticed little sounds and vibrations that I didn't notice when I first got it. After awhile if your like me you'll hear all sorts of stuff and probably think the bike is dying but from what I've read it's all normal.

That's kinda my thought as well. I bought it in July of last year, rode it through November, and just busted it out in the last few weeks. I remember feeling it last fall, but I was more concerned with the CCTL buzzing at the time that I didn't really pay attention. Now I'm just trying to take care of issues I notice as they arise. I suppose it's pretty normal.

Im not too sure if we are talking about the same thing but that feeling you get through the handle bars when in neutral is just the clutch engaging, its a normal thing. that feeling I am talking about is only a slight but very noticeable vibration
