Vibration

New owner noticed the bike vibrates and chugs a fair bit below 4k rpm even when revving through e.g. from idle through past 4k it vibrates then smooths out a bit. Bike is in a good state of tune flapper mod not done yet.

is this something its just started doing? Just trying to work out if its a fault or whether the owner has not ridden/owned an RC51 before, and its just the bikes natural characteristics.

Is it struggling to make power? is power delivery smooth? any engine/airbox mods?

Need a bit more info chappy

Mods: Erion Cans, flapper valve system removed, PAIR removed, Turn One airbox, PCIII usb with custom map

I live with fear everyday........but sometimes she lets me race!

vibration

1st time RC51 owner vibration from purchase. The bike runs fine no power loss or tuning issues, just wanted to know if this is typical of the RC51?

Actually I never notice any vibration on mine (even though it does).
As with any engine, it has it's own range where it balances out better.
