Thanks for your help, the only changes to bike were the addition of Evotech engine protector crash bungs, next step is to remove them.

Might be worthwhile checking that the bolts are tightened correctly, but I don't know what the torque value is.

 I have had bikes for over 45v years and this is the worst, but was not like it when i got it.

Thanks for your feedback

Instead of removing try to check of the screws and well tight

hi

Thank you for your reply, I have taken them off now but not ridden it, but they were very tight.

There is a specific tightening/torque sequence for mounting this engine in the frame - your dealer is correct, if this engine has been loosened in the frame then it needs to be reset - otherwise expect vibration as it's out of alignment.

Thank you Kernow Jim, you are exactly right as the dealer confirmed what you have said.

However, I only removed the main bolts for the bobbins and the top frame engine  bolts were just loosened and not removed.

The dealer has sent me the sequence and I will try that.

Your help is much appreciated.

Thank you

Steve

Hope it works out for you.  This bike is notoriously smooth, one of the smoothest by all accounts as there is a rubber engine mount towards the rear of the engine whereas most motors are a direct bolt to the frame type.

I found keeping a loose grip works for me. My levers are adjusted so my hands fall naturally on them and my wrists stay straight and relaxed. I still have to remind myself to loosen my grip.

Adjusting the levers is something I did almost immediately. And yeah, learning to have a loose grip really helps. Takes time to get it really engrained.
