engine vibration ahhh

so i recently laid my bike down( 05 cbr600rr), nothing big just hit some gravel at low speeds and it slipped out from under me, maybe 15 mph. I picked it up started it up and drove away. I noticed that around 4500 rpms and up there is a vibration. Its not really bad but i certainly notice its presence. Anything i should check/idea on what it could be, should i keep driving it or park it until i find out whats wrong.



Thanks

What kind of vibration are we talking about - the bars shaking side to side, or just a tickle in the hands ata certain RPM (aka engine related)?

Vibrations around those RPM's are normal. You never feel the vibrations unless something is going through your mind making you look for something happening on the bike.

I think this tingling is normal... If I'm on the highway chugging along in 6th at about 70mph, there isn't too much vibration. Not as much as when I'm flying on my favorite twisty back road in second at anywhere from 8k to 12k.


To be fair though, I went down as well, pretty low speed....... who knows.

Squid test:

So far, 13109 people (including you) have responded to this Squid Test Survey and have been tabulated.
Of those responses, the average grade is 53. Your grade was 82 (from 0 to 100)

A higher grade indicates a stronger sense of common decency, and a lower grade is an indication of conspicuous squidliness and general disregard for civilized society. Your score indicates that you are a fairly responsible motorcyclist but a bit of a wise-ass.

Hahaha.
