Re: Vibration coming from shock?

Sorry to keep asking this question but this is frustrating. Ever since I installed my FoxShock (4-5 months ago), I've noticed a vibration in my bike as I hit 6500rpms. It comes on suddenly - not gradually. I feel in predominantly in the pegs but I notice it in the seat and bars too. In fact, longer, aggressive rides leave my hands and feet numb.

I initially thought it was my exhaust because the fit/finish of the connection right below my pegs (where the headers meet the midpipe) is so poor. Well, if I place my boot on the pipe when the vibration comes on, I don't notice it as much as I do in my toes, which are on the pegs. If the vibration isn't coming from my exhaust, what else might cause it? I really noticed it after installing my shock. Would something on that cause a vibration?

If it's not the Hindle, I'll apologize to everyone since I've been bashing them as cheap.
