Been away.........vibrating beast.

So its been awhile since Ive posted any new threads (which is good since it means my bike has been running great.) Today i had my bike up over 8000RPMs and it felt a bit "vibraty." not unstable or shaking but ...."vibratey", tank vibrating......that sort of vibratey. Im not hearing any unusual noises and Im def not losing power. This normal? Ive had the bike up near redline before but I will admit I dont get it that high too often. Should I be concerned or do these monsters just "do that"????

Re: Been away.........vibrating beast.

some vibration is normal, excessive vibration could mean the engine is ready to let loose.....

but just check your rubber mounts under the tank and make sure nothing is rubbing or tapping anything to make that noise.

Don't say that!
It's taken months to convince him his engine's okay after some minor overheating ;-)

Re: Been away.........vibrating beast.

LOL funny one Blade. Seriously though. No vibrations what so ever or noises down below the 8 grand mark....but up over seems a little loose. The only noise I caaaan say is at start up it taps a little louder than normal for 4 seconds (till the oil gets up there I imagine). Could it be that my HTEV is wired in the midrange position and the engine wants more room to push the air??

I'd have to feel it to give you any clues at all.
Did you remove the flapper from the airbox as well?

The overheating gremlins are back to haunt you and finish off the job.

Seriously temptim, how did you come up with the idea about the HTEV being an issue?
