I feel for ya Bandit, I'm a 30 year mechanic too, and the wrists have taken a beating over the years, thats the main reason why I can't ride a bike with more than a 10deg forward lean to the bars(the k13s is 25deg). Before you jump ship on the bike, take another one out for a test ride, maybe It's the ergo's that killing you more than the vibes. Also, I would not trust the opinion of a dealer tech/service writer that would have to pay out of the dealerships pocket to repair a problem. That 90 day warranty most likely is not thru BMW. One thing I would not think was the problem would be the drive shaft, on the K the u-joint angles are very small and the shaft has a rubber vibration absorber in the middle that is very affective.
