    Hopefully your question will get a little more exposure and response in the Goldwing Tech Forum.

    I like to keep my 1800 no lower than 2500 rpm when riding on anything other than level ground. My absolute minimum is 2,000 rpm. Pulling a slight incline, depending on what gear you're in could cause a small vibration until the engine reaches its happy torque zone for the load on it.

    If it's just a slight vibration I wouldn't worry about it. Just keep an ear on it so that you notice if it gets worse.

    3,000 is a good happy medium for shifting up.

    Vibration may be early signs of u-joint going south.
