    Is the vibration constant or only at certain speeds/gears?

    What have you done as far as investigating the issue?

    I noticed the gas tank is kinda loose. Thought maybe it was a known problem.

    No, I have never heard of it or experienced it. You should be able to just tighten the straps up.
