They only vibe if you don't rev them hard enough. I've got a 17" wheel set on my SXC with 16/40 gearing (I think) At 100 it vibes and shudders. Run it up to 130 and it smoothes out beautifully. They...

I find the LC4 the opposite to the XR. The harder you rev it, the smoother it gets (within reason) I think I've got 16/40 or 42 gearing on 17's and it smoothes out beautifully at 120-30km/hr (LC4) If...

The Oz spec SXC only has 43mm forks. I think the very last of them had the cush drive hub. Mines an '05 and it doesn't have it. But it does have the oil in the frame.
