Been looking through for a solution to this problem but the word vibration means too many different things here.
The Reckless is doing what it's supposed to. I'm worried, however, by the amount of vibration I'm getting at low speeds
. Maybe shaking violently
is a better description. Between 20 - 30 mph, or the perfect State Park back road speed, the thing shakes so hard it wants to jump off the bike. This is the same vibration that caused my Kuryakyn lay down license plate mount to snap and require welding in the past.
That was steel and it snapped after a few years, 30k miles or so. How is a fibreglass fairing supposed to hold up for 100k more miles? I can only imagine what that's doing to the mounting bolts, speaker mounts, radio mounts, and internal electronics.
I'm thinking that if Yami
could use weighted bar end grips to reduce vibe, maybe the same would work here. Anyone tried something similar? I'm thinking of glassing or epoxying some sort of weights into the fairing wings and that might cut down on the worst of it. I can steady the shaking with a very light grip on the upper edge of the fairing, so that gives me some hope that this can be solved.
