Is it just me or do our bikes vibe more as the mileage clicks on, mine at 7500 miles vibes more at higher revs than when it had 3000 miles on the clock?
If I'm giving it a bit, I end up with tingling finger syndrome, mines super smooth below 4000rpm but Defo has more vibes above, not ridiculous or harley level but just annoying ones.Dunno, I’m halfway at 5000 miles and haven’t noticed any changes yet. Still as smooth as a baby’s bum.
70 mph pull the clutch in and the vibes immediately stop BUT the vibes are calming down a little bit since I've reverted back to v power 98 octane fuel instead of supermarket 95. I checked the compression and it's perfect on both cylinders. I think it could be abit of me as the wife was on the back for a 60 mile blast to hebden bridge and she never felt a thing??Too slack will not cause vibes.
Is it coming from the engine for sure? Maybe wheels need balancing?
That's cool, Hebden bridge was a great ride out today, 28c and breakfast in the sun. Thinking back I'm sure my original scrambler did pretty much the same with supermarket fuel.Doesn't sound like wheels. Bigger grips & bar-end weights will help, but that's really masking a potential problem.
Pulling in the clutch (and I assume laying off the throttle) sounds like the engine is the source.
The gas is an interesting point. I always use 98, but on a trip through Canada last year had to use a lower octane and my bike definitely ran rougher and with lower mpg. From everything I've read on the science, what I experienced shouldn't happen, but I swear it did.
BTW - I grew up in Nottingham and went to Uni in Manchester. Totally jealous when you describe going to Hebden Bridge!
