Question about 2003 kawasaki KLR 250
The bike vibrates horrendously through the complete rev range,it has been isolated to the engine,i need to know how to check and repair the balance weights
SOURCE: front end vibration
Check if there's any play within the bearings..top and bottom of the triple tree. Put your bike on the center stand and ask someone to sit onthe bike seat and tht way it will raise in the front, try to shake the triple tree into forward and backward motion, if you do find some play thn try to adjust them(bearing)...careful not to keep em tight or else you wont get a good balance on the steering whiles riding!
Check the bushing at the handle bar too!
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 1999 kawasaki Drifter Vibration
I have owned my 1500 since new, the vibration around 50mph I would say is normal for this motor..I think it is just the resonance of the engine at this RPM...On my own bike I replaced the U joint( which wasn't defective) wheel balance and brg problems eliminated,etc. As for the remaining vibration by pulling in the clutch and the vibs go away.Gagets stated in an
e-mail it could be rubber harmonic balancers in the engine that got brittle may be the problem..Also I think worn motor mounts may contribute to the problem. My only concern is getting stuck somewhere...My drivetrain is ok so I'll live with a little vibration until I have to take the engine apart for some reason.

Testimonial: "Thanks alot! Also is yours the 99'?...I heard they have a defective clutch (mines slipping) I wonder if that may be a contributing factor???"
