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.

Vibration between 40 and 60 mph


when did you have your tires balanced last. If it has been awhile have them re-balanced. Your description sounds like you may have thrown a weight.

VIBRATION AT 60 TO 65 MPH


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.

Vibration in the steering wheel on a 4wd truck


I just had the same issue with a 1999 2500HD and the vibration got worse above 50 mph. Problem was resolved with a new driveshaft. Old one (aluminum) was badly out of true and the problem didn't really occur until I had the U joints changed - then bent driveshaft vibration was noticeable. New driveshaft resolved issue.

Vibration at 60 mph


The first thing to have checked is the wheel balance, if they are good then you need the brake system and wheel bearings checked. Please let me know if this does not help as there are a few more specific problems that could cause vibration.

Vibration felt in front floorboard


Yes it can but the dealer would have found it on the test drive if they test drove the vehicle. The only other causes for the vibration I can think of should have been found on inspection as well. Check your bushings and mounts for the sway bar and your tie rod ends as well.

Vibration from 45-60 mph..new michlin tires ,aligned and balanced


have the steering rack checked for excess play, also have all the front end bushing checked, this is a common cause of this type of problem, it is the front end that is doing it, finding the worn part(s) is the job that needs to be done to correct this.
