will 640 vibration eventually kill us?

what vibrations?
:lol3
actually they get better with breakin and a good tune up. get the jetting right and after the first sevice they'll start to calm down and continue to for the first couple K,miles. they seem to take forever to break in but go forever. Enjoy.

Can I jump in on this thread as well? :D I just purchased a TE-610 and it vibrates more than I would have thought. Do the jetting and restricted(read in-line cat) exaust also have an effect on the vibes to some degree, and will opening up the pipe and rejetting also aid in smooting out a thumper? TIA Dan

No, the vibrations won't kill you. Anything over a 100km ride may, however, render you sterile.:deal

I guess I don't need to worry about birth control then because I rode 680km in one day--more than half of it off road.

I motor that vibrates will continue to vibrate, I mean come on it won't magiclly go away. It's something I guess you have to live with, most thumpers have vibrations (although my DRZ is VERY smooth, even better than my VFR I had :wink: ).

This question was just posed by another; you must have missed it. Luckly for you, one of the local wrenches took a stab in the dark at a reply (since his post, like yours, is severely lacking in information...) Here it is:

It won't kill you, but it will make you get hairy palms and go blind !

Honestly when I read about the LC4 and vibration issues I cannot relate to them because my 05 Adv is exceptionally smooth and is in stock form with 1000kms. I can not say whether mine is better then others or that I'm less bothered by vibration then others. Mirrors are still funtional at highway speeds, my hands have never got numb so maybe I got one that vibrates less then others maybe you will too.:freaky

Only if you die from haveing too much fun:rofl

The vibration issue is over exagerated. Some people seem to be bothered by a littel vibration and others don't. I rode mine on an 850 mile weekend and I never noticed the vibration as an issue.

I thought it was killing my girlfriend, with all the screams and thrashing around? I had never seen her exhibit that kind of behavior before? But she said she didn't mind?

I apologise for not reading or searching more but didn't recall seeing the issue of catalyst and their effect on engine as it relates to vibration. I understand jetting and miles will smooth a bike out. I am in a sort of quandry over removing the catalyst. If it makes the bike perform poorly either by increasing vibration or by bieng so hot to melt my fenders then it will get pulled for a freer flowing aftermarket exaust. I know I have read that restriction has an effect but searching can't retrace my steps...

You are a bigger man than I to admit that... :bow
