Question about 2008 Yamaha XT 660 R

2 Answers

Bad Vibrations HI... I have a Yamaha XT 660R 2009 model... I bought this bike exactly 1 year ago and currently have 24 000Km on the clock. at about 18 000km my bike picked up a very obvious vibration while riding at about 120 km/h, my bike has just recently come back from a service and I thought the service should sort out the vibration, alas it didn't! Please could you try and help me figure out how to get my smooth ride back? Thank you.... Cheyne

    I have ben asked to clarify a few things... firstly thank you to tombones49 and cape cod bob for the fast response. I do however have a feeling that the vibration is coming from the engine, but it seems that this only happens between 120 km/h and 130 km/h.

  • cheyne725 Apr 20, 2009

    That would indeed make more sense... some dirt in the engine or gear box... i will indeed give it a bash and then take it into the dealer to a more personal look at it... Thank you guys!!! :)

    check your tires, if you can raise the wheels just off the ground and spin them while you are watching to see if they are truly round, if not you will notice the gap get smaller.

    When was the last time you had the wheels balanced? Is the triple tree loose? > the part the forks bolt onto with the center stem mounted in the neck of the frame.

Obviously, harmonics are at play here. I suggest you change gearbox oil and filter then change the oil again (w/o filter) after 50 miles. The idea is to flush dirt and grit from the engine. Try the bike now. Some would say this is a long shot but it is cheap and not much hassle > and it may well work. If nothing else, it cant't hurt anything. Change to premium gas to eliminate pre-ignition.

If the vibration is still present you had best take the bike to the dealer for his first hand input. Broken clutch friction plate? Bearing going bad? Connecting rod going bad? If I had to wager I would go with the clutch. I am reaching here. Not much more I can do.

Cape Cod Bob, What are your thoughts?

I would take it to the shop where you had it serviced and tell them since you had service it vibrates..... see if you can get them to figure it out, now it's not missfiring is it,

Yamaha service manual xt125r 2009


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service/owners/parts manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, then there is eBay where you may be able to find what you need at a very high price because of its age and rarity. Most of the "FREE" manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have.

The bike was manufactured in October '09 to be sold as the 2010 model year. Auto dealers do the same. You can buy a 2011 Ford Mustang in September of this year, 2010.
