Question about 1989 Suzuki RGV 250 K

1 Answer

Vibration New to the forum..just bought a new suzuki bike and the only thing I have against it .is it vibrates about 60 mph enough to distort the images bad in the mirrors.. Also letting off the throttle produces a chirping noise right below the sitting area..loud enough to hear with Cobra exhausts and fullface helmet..Put stock exhaust back on since. Chirping doesn't sound like tire chirping..almost like air leak..but checked everything..exhaust has no leaks.. Anyone else heard or have this problem??

Congratulations on the new bike, the whine could be the shaft drive, I've heard they can put a out a short duration whine as kind of a protest when there is a forced mismatch between engine and road speed that a quick deceleration can do. At 60 mph plus I'm wishing that there is one more gear to get into, but I don't find the vibration annoying. I think any bike at that speed will have vibration issues in the mirrors, as there is little mass to dampen it out. Its one of the reasons I switched to convex mirrors as I find there is less distortion.

S50 vibration above 40 mph. Tire pressure is ok, pulled clutch in and vibration goes away

When the clutch is in of course you're just coasting not under power. If vibration stops you could rule out tire balance but under power could be many things. Is it a shaft drive? If so you're u joint may be going.

Give the bike a thorough service. These engines are very strong, but as with any engine this can be compromised by bad or missed servicing. The vibration could be any number of things, but check the front wheel bearings and the fork mounts and also the chain and sprockets. if the chain is old it can cause a vibration which would seem as if it is coming from the engine. If you have to change the chain then do the sprockets at the same time. If you fit a new chain to old sprockets it will wear faster and cost more.

Hi Jerry, and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires unbalanced, worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain badly worn or links tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect/poorly tuned engine
7. Internal engine problem/ flywheel shift runout should be .003" max.
8. Broken frame
Good luck and have nice day.
