Would this cause more then usual vibrations

My bike has always been the buzzy type but lately its been a little worse then usual.

Last night while changing the oil I noticed that 1 of 3 bolts on the right side engine mount was missing and 1 or 2 of the others were loose. Would this cause the excess vibrations. Right now its sitting on its stands pending a new bolt but could this have caused some of the new vibrations.

I figured it would and I am kicking myself in the ass for not checking into it sooner. Dad was out today so I sent him to the dealer to get me a new bolt so tomorrow I will put my scooter back together and hopefully its all good

Its funny b/c he went to a honda dealer and when he asked if there was anything else I said only if you want to pick me up a new bike while you are there. Then he said goodbye and hung up.. guess that was a no

Re: Would this cause more then usual vibrations

You should really get in the habit of checking bolts on a monthly basis (at least). Since Boston streets are full of moguls and I ride about 350 miles a week, I check weekly. Still, my 929 has shaken off fairing bolts and loosened engine mount bolts.

My most recent victim was my trunk latch, it's just gone and I now have a lovely rubber band holding my trunk shut. Went to swing my leg off last night and almost fell flat on my ass. Trunk was wide open.

I usually do keep very tight maintenance. We have had a few nice days in a row and that went out the window in order to get in as much riding as possible. Going to have to break that new habit
