Hi Gareth and welcome to the forum.

A slight vibration through the bars is normal. Most of it can be toned down with Grip Puppies. They slip over your grips and work very well.

+1 for grip puppies. I was getting numb hands after 30 miles on my K1200s. You can get them from amazon for around 15 as I recall.

Amen to that

A ride's just not the same if I haven't squeezed a pair of puppies.
