Re: My MT-03 is vibrating an making a bit of a tattling...
I have replied already to your other post... didn't see this one... not sure what the vibration through the peg could be caused by as they mount directly to the frame. The frame being a substantial structure to the bike means that the vibration is being created anywhere on the frame,and you are feeling it in your foot peg. The only thing that comes to mind is that perhaps one of the tank mounting rubbers is not seated properly, or inadvertently rolled away on the garage floor. This is what I would be checking for.

the only thing spinning and vibrating at idle is the crankshaft, gear box , clutch and flywheel
if the power commander is electronic there may be a fault in it
best place for these faults is a dealer shop as they are aware of these sorts of problems
All v twins have an inherent low vibration. It's what makes them great. If you're asking how to minimize the vibration, aftermarket poly dampers are available to replace the mounts where the handlebar mounts to the tree. There's heavier, softer handlbar grips that make a huge difference, wearing gloves help. If excessive vibration is something that recently appeared you should check your front wheel balance, engine mounts, etc. A good front wheel inspection and balancing should help.
17 years is a long time for engine rubbers on a v twin. But if the vibration is only in the handlebars, you might want to fit some heavier handlebar end weights. They are there to absorb vibration(they act as dampers.) But, if the vibration is in the engine, it may be worth checking the ignition timing. On a Big V the ignition only needs to be out by a small amount to set up a noticeable vibration.
hi check chain and sprocket for condition, lubricate if nessasary, replace if required, with respect of the vibration, is this that has just started? or is a development factor, had the same problem once with a yamaha 125r, asuming you have checked all the engine bolts are tight, i fitted a pair of foam grips made the ride much better
Your camchain maybe worn resulting in chain slap when engine loaded when still cold, or some valve lap delay resulting in pinging or blowback. (coughing). A top end inspection may be required
This may effect the vibrations but is likely to be loose engine to frame mounts or loose steering head.
Check play of rear shock mounts top and bottom for any play. This would impact through the frame and tank, bars etc., but is more to do with road surface and speed.
Are the wheels balanced?
Thoroughly inspect ALL bolts (engine mounts, engine head bolts, pegs, handlebars, triple clamps, swingarm, exhaust header and muffler mounts) for tightness as vibrations are one or two steps away from tumbling down the tarmac. Vibrations are the main cause of bolts loosening......
this new exhaust has thrown the engine way out of tune, and the carbs need to be re-set up as the bike is now running very week,,,,you will burn a hole in a piston very soon if you dont re-tune it,,,this could also be causing some if not all of the vibration your getting, but check the sprokets are running true life the rear of the bike clear of the ground and spin the rear wheel if you feel or here a grinding sound its the sprokets not meshing with the chain also did you have the new tyer balanced when it was fitted???
this also causes vibration
Hello cloaky...does the vibration seem to be more RPM related than speed related on your gixxer? Can it be felt more through the grips, or foot pegs? Any noise along with the vibration? The 99 GSX-R600 has been subject to recall for the replacement of it's faulty cam chain tensioner (NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 99V132000) Dealer supplied and installed at no charge under warranty... corrected the problem of cam chain tension but the damage of shorten chain life for most owners, had already occured. Didn't know if you were aware of this...so i thought i would mention it. Hope this helps...
Best approach to working out these sorts of problems is to pull the tank off again,and carefully check all your work. Particularly any new wiring, or wiring that you may have disturbed whilst installing the grips. Check also that all of the rubber mounts for the tank are correctly in place. Cabling has a tendency to rattle quite loudly against any and everything on your bike. Vinyl insulation tape lagging new cables to existing looms is an effective way to stop them rattling, and strategically placed cable ties, particularly about the front end and headlamp fitting. Good luck with the de-rattle. Let me know how you got on. Cheers
