Stock mirrors for now. Do want to get something with a bigger viewing area.You look pretty stock too. Looking at your pic. I honestly can't remember how mine ran when I got it but my mirrors vibe at a light.
my mirrors and windshield shake when stopped at a light. Nothing major but not smooth either. At higher RPMs, when cruising the interstate, my keys vibrate and I can feel it on the hand grips. Seems to get worse at higher RPM's. I might get the carb sync checked.This is my first v twin, and I'd say mine is pretty smooth.
A friend of mine and I were shopping for bikes this past weekend, and the owner of a used lot started a VN1600, and it was smooth too.
Then he tried to show off a Harley 1200. Thing vibrated so bad it would have made a novelty toy at an adult store blush.
When I'm idling at a light, my mirrors aren't shaking, how about yours?
I've rode alot of bikes from honda nighthawks to Harley sportsters and the VN does vibrate to a point like in the pegs. I thought my feet would push off.I finally got around to checking for loose bolts and found that the upper thru bolt was extremely loose. After tightening, the vibration got worse. I can feel it in the foot pegs. I don't like this. Also, I installed mccts because I thought I had acct noise and couldn't get rid of the tapping coming from the front cylinder. This bothers me. I'll probably get the carb sync checked and replace the plugs. This is a 1990 with 17000 miles.
i changed to oil several weeks ago and didn't notice any shavings, but i at this that time I wasn't looking for them either. I may drain the oil this weekend. I'm assuming you're refering to the balancer.Just a wild shot in the dark ..... have you checked the oil for shavings?
