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.

Suzuki SX4 shudders on acceleration. Why?


well that depends on WHAT shudders.
the engine or the transmission or the drive shafts or tire, or or or
like Real Estate, location is every thing, with noise or vib.

if the engine shakes.?
find a mech as him to diagnosis it.

trans missions can slip or shudder
the engine can bog, misfire, shack or do lots of odd things,
find some that can tell the difference.

Shakes ONLY under acceleration? Goes away when you back off of the throttle? Are you sure?
Please inspect the front and both side engine mounts.The half shafts will cause that sort of a shake(whole car) when they go bad(inboard CV joints).
Aggravated OR caused my a motor mount that has shifted to one side,binding the half shaft.
Common in Chrysler mini vans!!!!!!That is why the front motor mount is adjustable.
Check the engine mount on the short half side first.

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

I have a 75 flh with the passenger peg mounted to the primary inspection cover.is this stock. if not where do they mount


Yes, this is where the passenger foot peg on the left side of the bike goes. There is an arm that clamps onto the round stub on the inspection cover and is afjustable to almost any angle. The right side foot peg support bolts to the end of the transmission and also has an adfustable arm that clamps onto a stub on it. Then the pegs go on the end of the arms. Go to this site and take a look . http://www.bikebandit.com/1975-harley-davidson-flh-1200/o/m770#sch171752 I'm pretty sure they didn't move the peg brackets to the seat tubes of the frame until 1977. If your bike has two holes in a welded-on tab on the rear of the down tubes behind the primary and the transmission, you can use the later model peg brackets. But, if your bike has no holes in the frame or the swingarm for passenger peg brackets, this is the only style you can use and stay original. You could fabricate and weld on tabs to later model peg brackets or use clamp on brackets and pegs.


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.

Vibration that shakes the whole car


If this engine has a fan clutch check to see if the clutch spins freely when the engine is shut off. If its frozen that will cause a vibration which will shake the entire car.. The next item of interest would be the torque convertor in the transmision. They can shake a car very well also
