Vibration in outrigger attachment of Nova DVR?

I got the "outboard tool rest assembly" for my Nova DVR XP for Christmas and have used it just a couple of times for bowl turning since then (I was distracted by a couple of cabinetry projects) and rough turned another bowl yesterday. It feels to me like I get a fair amount of vibration in the rest when using it - more than when using the regular banjo. It is securely bolted on to the cast iron bed, but seems that maybe sticking out so much allows for too much vibration. Has anyone else seen this?

I had lots of problems with vibration with my Nova outrigger. I solved the problem by using a piece of All thread about 3/4" in diameter. I put a nut and washer on the rod and put the rod up through the slot in the outrigger. Then I screw the nut up against the outrigger to support it. I did put a floor flange on the bottom of the rod to make it more stable.
