Thanks for the replies so far guys! Some good info already (I hope.) Just to clarify, the brackets are fine, bought them from a member of the RSR
forum and have had them in my hands several times since the fairing was installed.
Ready to Learn something here
That's funny, me too!
Also, check your steering head bearings and make sure they are good and snug (no flop condition). What pressure are you runnning in your front tire, and what brand is it? Is your idle speed correct (900 RPM)?
Good advice about the steering head bearings, but I think it's ok. Just did the forks this spring and thought I snugged everything up, but I'll double check that.
Running a Metzler, could use a new one in about a couple thousand miles probably. Can let go of the handlebars on the highway without a problem. Pressure's good, thought it was a tire issue until I realized I could make this happen standing still, and every time I ran up through the gears.
Loosen all four engine bolts. Start the engine and let it run for a few minutes. Re-tighten engine bolts.
Apparently cross tension between the engine bolts is one of the causes for vibration. Got his trick from a motorcycle mechanic friend of mine.
Going to give this a try. No harm right? Never really knew the best way to go about checking them, since they're already tight.
I get a pretty good "buzz" at around 3,000 rpm. I have heard that if the jetting is off and I believe to the rich side, It will cause vibration.
Thanks, probably need to check into this too.
