vibration

I notice the 919 has alot of vibration around 5k (or anytime really). is it just a design flaw. is there something I need to check that I'm over looking? I never notice this vibration on any of my previous bikes.

If you search, you'll find this topic comes up regularly.

Yes, the bars do vibrate a bit. New bar end weights will help. Gel grips may help. Replacing the handlebars may help.

well I should have been more discriptive. the buzz thru bars doesnt bother me as much as the foot pegs.

If im not mistaken, the vibes are more aparent because the motor is a stressed member in the frame. Around 5k seems a be a pretty common spot to have it get "buzzy". I would says its mostly just the nature of the beast.

Oddly enough, installing the Sato rearsets on my bike almost completely eliminated the foot vibes. You would think that the solid mounting pegs would transfer more.. but I think not having a long piece of metal sticking backwards to wobble back and forth and pick up harmonics is the reason why. The long piece of metal being the passenger foot pegs. I have them, but do not use them.

Hey h_ryder,

Do you ride an RC? You must be lonely over here amongst all the nakeds? RC this and RC that. When are you buying a niner already.. we all know you want one.. why else would you lurk around here?



P.S. I have it on good authority that the 9er vibrates less than the RC.

nah... my brother had an '04 9'r... rode it a few times, but wasn't enough to stray me from the RC. I got nothing against 'em, just not my cup of tea.

I just gotta drop in and let you naked people know there's another world outside the hive.

Install a set of alloy bars...and beware of thick gel grips, a large diameter grip will tire out hands quick. I agree with the rearset theory...I am installing Sato's this weekend. At idle you can actually see the passenger pegs vibrating. Hope that helped.

The RC doesn't vibrate. Those are love pulses!

And, my $.02 on the 919 vibration. Just don't ride in the 5k range.

well I think it vibes in all ranges but more in the 5k range. really I flog the **** out of it. being used to 600 sport bikes (R6 mostly) i bounce the 919 off the rev limiter quite offten. my friend used to ride a bandit and I rode it once. he said I could change gears on it but I was used to hitting 10k and shiffiting or keeping it up around 8k. he thought I was afraid to change gears lol
