try loosening all of the Crash Bar fixings, tighten the join where the bars meet in front of the Rad and then tighten the rest.

http://www.DL650.org/photos/pbsoluces/Ricky/vibrations-crash-bars-givi.html has pix showing a possible solution for the Givi crash bar vibration on the earlier model Glee (#6 in parts list). Maybe this solution may be of help on your model. Any rubber washer of the correct diameter should do the same function. I made use of 2x bath tap jumpers, to fit over the bolt as shown in the last pix of the attached link. The bath jumper centers had to be widened a bit to all the bolt to fit.
Other solutions have been recommended, like the garden hose snap lock extender to replace the connector in 2nd last pix of the post link. The snap lock coupler has a rubber water seal O ring on each end of the plastic coupler, that goes inside the carsh bar tube, effectively replacing the original (item #3 of parts list). Example of this snap lock extender can be viewed on https://www.amazon.co.uk/Double-Connectors-Extender-Garden-Green/dp/B072K468RP
