Default Vibrations in Friction Drive Bikes

First of all I tried the "Search" and found very little on friction drive kits. Maybe I just haven't learned how to properly use it. I have a new bike on the way for some motor kit. I have read what seems like hundreds of post here that complain about vibrations that make parts fall off the bike and require retighting of connectors often. I want my bike to be one that I can ride and not have to work on constantly so I am leaning toward a friction drive system with a Honda 4 stroke engine. This seems like a simple system with very few parts that would be easy to replace. I do not ride in the rain so that is not an issue for me. My question for the owners of friction drive owners is how much vibration do you get with the friction drive system. Anybody want to talk me out of friction dirve?
