The exhaust idea sounds good(no pun) however, I would think it would vibrate at all rpms in that case. Question; What modifications have been made to the bike? When did the vib. start? Another question; what type of wheels are on this bike? Why did you change the mounts?

Hi .... This may sound daft but have you recently changed or had the exhaust off ? Have a look at the silencer/muffler rear mounts, difficult to explain but they should be in a 'neutral' position, not fully pushed in. Maybe the vibes are coming straight along the pipes from the engine and through the footpegs.
Let me know how you get on.

1998 harley flht 1340 carberated, vibration problem from 1300 to 1900 rpm


Hi James, 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.

I have a bad vibration on my 94 fxdlonly6 when i am slowing down or at a certain rpm but it is totally fine at a steadypace or when accelerating


Ok, the Dyna series bikes have rubber mounted engines but the mounts have a tendency to only absorb the higher frequency vibrations. When the engine is idling or running at RPM's lower than about 2000, you can feel the engine vibrations. I have a 1994 FXDWG and it does the same thing. This is normal for all engines with rubber motor mounts. However, since the bike has quite a number of years on it, it would be a good idea to check the mounts and the stabilizers to see if they might need replacement.

Good Luck

Cbr 125r 05 vibration


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......

Goodluck and Cheers.

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.

2005 dyna wide glide...fuel injected...have engine vibration during acceleration...bike is smooth free wheeling at 70 mph...vibration returns with engine speed...need help


I'd check the motor mounts. The front mount is easy to get to but the rear isn't quite so easy. I'd check the front mount and the top engine stabilzer.

I assume that you've owned this bike long enough to know how it should feel. The Dyna series has rubber engine mounts. They do a very good job of dampening engine vibration once the engine gets up in it's rpm range. When the engine is idling, the vibrations can be felt then. When accelerating, you can feel some vibration but it should be bad.

Check your engine mounts and your primary chain adjustment. If it's something to do with the fuel system, I'm afraid that a dealer is going to have to check that for you. Good Luck!

My 2009 Dyna Super Glide Custom motorcycle has had an unusual amount of vibration overall when under way while accelerating or deaccelerating through 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears. It seems to me to be either...


You can check for a loose or broken motor mount but you need to consider how the rubber mounts work. The mounts absorb high frequency vibrations. Low frequency vibrations will be felt throughout the machine.

On most Dyna's, the bike vibrates when idling. When accelerating though the gears (and decelerating back down) if the engine rpm's gets below about 2000 rpm's, you'll feel the vibration. Once above this level, the bike smooths out due to the change in frequency of the vibrations. I have owned a '94 FXDWG since new and this is my experience with the bike.

However, if the vibration is very bad, you may need to have it looked at by a technician. You'll have to determine that for yourself.

Vibration at 2900 RPM


I have the same problem with my Roadking except it wasnt dropped. I did a full alignment of rear tire to engine, aligned the rear tire to front tire, aligned the engine and replaced the front motor mount. Nobody seems to have an answer, that I've talked to anyway. If you find a cure let me know, If I find one I'll let you know.
