vibration

  1. Transalp
    Does anyone knows if the rubber bushes from the top yoke that takes the vibration from engine/road can be taken from something else? If there are any bushes compatible? as the same sizes? it's within the nr 14

    Sorry for the silly question this double spacer , the big part should be on the bottom of the windshield or the top ? i put the big part on the bottom but i feel it's wrong as there is a big hole that the small part can get out through when you have a lot of vibration. can anyone check his/her...

    Heat from the exhaust gases is frying the rear indicator housing and vibration from the exhaust destroys the bulb! Is there an off the shelf bracket that will move the right indicator below the line of the exhaust and into fresh air? Or is there an angled extension/deflector tube to fit the...

    Hi lads I have a 1998 RD07a, and I recently went on a ~350km ride around the vietnamese countryside, and all started out fine, and we were humming along. As we went, I noticed the bike was vibrating more and more, and on the final 50km, it was so rough, that I almost feared it would cut out if...

    Like the title says: Highway driving vibration solutions are needed. It's not completely terrible, but with a ton of full riding days ahead of me, I'd love to hear ways to decrease the vibes.

    Hi all I just got the chain and sprockets fitted and went for on tooth larger at the front as this seems to have been a popular mod. Whilst I find an improvement in 'pull' i also find there is a considerable increase in vibration below 50mph. Does anyone else find this? If so can it be...

    Probably been posted before (I tried to search) but.. I have noticed recently that there seems to be some vibes coming through the pegs. This seems to start at about 75mph. The bike is approx 3 months old and only done around 2200 miles. Just wondering if this is a known issue or should I...

    I recently removed the choke and blanked it off, and the bike rides really well, but I can now detect a more clonky, hammering sound and vibration coming from the engine, perhaps only the front cylinder, which was affected heavily by the sticky choke ... Could it be that I just need to sync the...

    Hi all, I have recently bought a 1998 TA 600 from a dealer which has only 8500 miles on the clock. It has a slight whiring noise from the engine and vibration through the bars at tickover which increases with revs, which totally disappear when the clutch lever is pulled in and the engine...

    I'm new to ATs (well in fact to riding generally). Recently bought a 1990 RD04 - it seems to be in very nice condition. One question I had was about how smooth the engine should be. At about 3 - 5,000 rpm in 2nd / 3rd when you open up the throttle I get a fair amount of engine vibration...
  15. Transalp
    Hi all This is my first post as a new member and I'm hoping that some of my fellow Transalpians will be able to solve my mystery wobble. I have had my Transalp for about 2 months now. Done just over 3500km... love the bike... love it... stunning... BUT. I pick up a slight wobble on the...

    So I changed my front tube yesterday, then took the RD03 out for a ride. At high speeds, I am noticing an odd vibration in the handlebars, but it also makes the bike shudder... The vibration isn't a constant amplitude either. It grows until its noticeable for about a second, then dies away, then...

    evening all......when out on bimble on me ta yesterday, i found my hands became numb after a while. not cold but definite vibration issue. have read other threads re: numb hands. have got oxford heated grips fitted ( previous owner) that stick out approx 1" from end of bars anyway. how can i...

    Here's the problem. Rd07, getting a irritating noise at 5000rpm. This is irrespective of gear selection. There is nothing above or below. When the bike is stationary there is also nothing. I would describe this as a fast noise, but cannot say that it is coming from the engine (in fact I doubt...
  19. Dominator / FMX
    Iput a thread on here a while ago about my Dominator ,vibrates in 4th,5th gear .It feels like the chain is jumping,i checked the rear sprocket & there is a lot of side way movement in the cush drive ,also seems to be small peices of rubber on the outside of the hub.Ithink this is the problem ,i...
