A 1980 GW .....sound engine-carbs rebuilt-no flat spots-no smoke-starts great-no excessive popping even with modified exhaust-runs even-42 mpg....but, the low rpm growl that the wing is famous for (in a strain below 3000 rpm), is not present until the engine reaches running temp. When then engine is cool, it's smooth throughout operating rpm range. Does you guys bike act like that?
My exercise bike is a goldwing.

I suppose it's possible that the primary chain, when warm, expands ever so slightly enough that there is enough slack to allow the vibration? That's just a guess. If it is the case, syncing the carbs may well have a positive effect.
