2007 DRZ-400e - I have lately had a weird engine noise coming from inside the engine at exactly 4800 - 5000 rpm. It is like a high vibration / grinding noise. I have done some digging on forums on TT but nothing seems to have quiet the same problem. The noise is going up and down gears, but only once the engine is hot. I have ordered a MCCT incase it is the Cam-Chain (though a cam-chain could make noise through all rpm) but has anyone else had this problem or a big enough gear head to give some advice on what to check? Bike has done around 20,000km's. Any help is greatly appreciated guys!!
I have a low hour 450 sx-f dungy edition. Case never been opened. Is it normal that it vibrates? I can ride about a 10 min moto befor my forearms go numb from the vibration. My older yami never vibrated this much. Neither does my fathers kawi.... is there a way to balance the motor to cut down this vibration? Anyone have an idea on prices to get it balanced? Im in socal thank you much ahead of time!
For the past year and a half or so, I've been shooting the videos on my YouTube channel (http://youtube.com/c/PatFarrellKTM) with a Garmin Virb Ultra 30. Before that, I used a GoPro Hero 3+. I bought the Virb for two main reasons: (1) it has built in image stabilization and (2) has overlays for speed, position, grade, altitude, etc. I tried editing the videos with Garmin's free VirbEdit program, but I found it frustrating, limited and dog slow. So now I just use VirbEdit to put the overlays on the movie, and then use PowerDirector 16 to actually edit, title, zoom, etc. If I were not riding a big KTM300 thumper on rocks and roots and logs and dirt, I'd love the Virb camera. The image quality is good, the G-Metrix overlays are great. The camera uses all my GoPro accessories like mounts. The battery life could be better, but I just carry spare batteries and micro-SD cards and swap them at breaks. The big problem is that the camera has to be used inside the Garmin waterproof case. Otherwise, its not sealed against dust and water and mud. The camera rattles inside the case over the stuff I ride on. The rattling drives me nuts. I've tried stuffing cardboard between the case and camera, it helps, but makes it very hard to get the camera in and out to change batteries, and the cardboard falls out. I've tried layers of electrical tape, which also sort of works, but it still makes changing the batteries a real effort and doesn't completely solve it. I've ordered a separate bluetooth microphone, I'll see what that does. Anyone have other ideas? suggestions? favorite cameras to check out? I really like the under the visor mount, its the best I've found. I am not sure that a long camera, like the Sony ones will fit there
Hi guys, Got an old steelie yz 125 that vibrates like mad right through the bars and into my fingers hand arms and feet and it preventing me from going as quick as I can because of arm pump and fatigue. Thinking of upgrading to a couple year old yz 125 or tc 125 (prefer two smoke but if 4 strokes massively help this matter then will consider) as they're now designed to reduce vibrations and fatigue on the rider with rubbery engine mountings rather than bolting straight into the frame etc etc. Has anybody switched up due to the same issue and has it helped you at all/a lot? Cheers! H
