Question about 2008 Ducati Multistrada 1100 S

1 Answer

Vibration Problem My Multi has a high frquency vibration across the rev range. It is most noticable in the seat and if you touch your knees to the tank. It is bad enough that 3 bolts vibrated out of the muffler cover. Has anyone had a similar problem? I think it may be worn main bearings. Bike has only 8 thou on the odometer, and serviced at correct intervals. Started this about 2000 miles ago, not getting any worse. Bike runs fine, idles fine. Any ideas?

Try to isolate where it is coming from. try listening with a screwdriver held against your ear and various locations on the running motor. does it happen in neutral or when moving, ect.? might want to drain the oil and cut open the filter to see how things look.maybe your flywheel got loose?

Why would my new Safari High volume snorkel cause a resonant drumming and vibration, like blowing across a bottle, in the 1100 - 11300 rev range.? Thanks, Cliff Cole 0408737546


Air turbulence causes an audible resonance in the snorkel. It was designed without taking that resonance into account.

Vibration at highway speeds when echo light is on, 2011 Honda Accord?


is the vibration in the steering wheel (front wheels need balancing) or through the seat/floor? (rear wheels need balancing).

if the vibration is speed specific the abovewill be true, if you are sure its connected to the eco light then this is becuase the car is not firing all cylinders to save fuel. I would get it tuned at a dealer if the vibration is really that noticable

I have a CRF100 and it has excessive vibration


Make sure all of the engine mounting bolts are tightened properly. One loose engine mount bolt can cause exactly what you are describing. While you're doing that, perform a visual inspection of the attachment points on the frame, making sure there are no visible cracks.
Aside from that, just stick a wrench on every bolt and nut on the bike that you can see - and make sure everything is tight.
The only other possible thing I can think of would be a loose flywheel on the crankshaft. Unlikely, but check just to be sure.

Severe vibration


Replace balancer. You don't notice them until you rev it up.

1998 honda crv vibrates when starting out


Increased vibration from a vehicle indicates worn out engine supports. This vibration often disappears when revving the engine high, but is very noticeable at low revs.

You can have these inspected and possibly replaced to reduce the vibration cominf from your engine.

Hope this helps.

Vibration on the floor underneath gas pedal


I would venture to say your exhaust is hitting your frame, or, you may need new motor mounts. The exhaust is what I would lean toward. If you can imagine your exhaust sitting under your vehicle, and the fact that the vehicle has a little age, the motor mounts probably give a little, causing the motor to move slightly on acceleration and deceleration, thus your exhaust is going to move, and may be vibrating on whatever its touching. Good luck.

what do you mean, breather tubes??? if you have fuel coming out the carburetor then your float level is too high and needs to be addressed. could be trash between the needle and seat or a worn out needle and seat. repair as quickly as possible as this will cause a rich fuel mix in the cylinders and can wash off the oil causing excessive cylinder wear. this also could be the source of your vibration problem.
