    quick poll for power commander people

    Hi,
    My 04 factory has annoying vibes,more of a buzz really,not really bad but sometimes gives me pins n needles mainly at around 3 to 4k revs.
    Tried every solution other than a power commander
    Just need to know from anyone with a power commander fitted, wether any of you have a similar vibe situation, or none at all
    Just want to be sure before forking out on one.
    Thanks in advance
    George

    Just the thundering twin thing m8, these r renowned for vibration,
    pc won't cure it but will smooth the flat spots out

    sorry to ask but when and how often do you actually drive between 3000 and 4000 rpm?

    what about weighting the bars a bit more, I've stuck lead down the bars on most of my v-twins and it seems to work well! or is it pins and needles elsewhere other than your hands?

    Alternative to sticking lead in the bars is filling them with sand. As well as adding the extra mass to chnage the response period the sand has more damping than the lead so if there is any vibrations it should discipate quickly.

    Have you changed the gearing ?
    If not try one down on the front or up a couple on the rear that will shift the rev range and help

    Get some grip puppies , they slide over the standard grips put them on a yam fjr1300 with r and g bar ends , the bar ends did nowt but the grip puppies are good , obviously the grip is bigger and it may make your cock feel thin when you go for a weewee, i may put some puppies on the ape this winter as i suffer with my ulna nerves [ funny bones] ,
