Question about 1998 Norton C 652 SM International
What is needed to correct this? Where can I get the parts?
I love these bikes. Vertical twins of this era vibrate, is just how it goes. Engine design was simple back then and no counter shafts are used, so there is a degree of vibration at low revs produced by 2 big bore pistons that will make the handle bars get a real bogey on at idle. If the carbs are out of sync,or need a tune, then you may have a lazy clyinder at idle that is producing the vibration also. Not sure if your bike has them, but some have rubber bushes that mount the handlebars. These can get sloppy with age and may need to be replaced. Another trick if the vibration is anoying you is to mix some lead shot with silicon and fill the ends of the handle bars up to "weight" them and reduce the vibration.
