    Bit of a long shot but easy to check, I had the chain on another bike causing a subtle click. Turned out to be the perfect balance of lube and tension making it slide to the inside as the wheel...

    It's way too rural where I'm at to buy what's essentially a 45mph scooter, but I feel like if I ever ride one I will end up with one of these.

    A Grom is just odd looking enough to keep me from...

    I haven't pulled the exhaust yet but the mounts are solid and there are no contact or rubbing spots.

    The vibe starts around 4k, +/- a hundred if I sneak up on it but very reliably at 4k. In gear...

    Early on, I went through all the externally accessible things.. timing chain tensioner was one of my first guesses as well but it's in good shape

    100% agree with this vibration clearly not being normal. When I first searched through the forum, others were told "they all do that", but it started so suddenly for me, on a straight away at...

    Quick thread resurrection since I finally managed to throw some resources at it. After hearing from two local shops that folks have just been riding with this vibe, I put another 2K mostly highway...

    Had to chime in because just today, I sold the rebel 250 I bought to train the wife. Taking it off my progressive policy would INCREASE my $380 annual rate by $44... I'm 43, and have $300k csl/full...

    I've noticed the same, though mostly on my air/oil cooled bikes. I used to blame my summer gloves.

    This vibe comes on quick though, like someone switched on a jigsaw zip tied to the frame...

    Quick thought, this started on yet another lovely 110 degree day on Edwards AFB... other than trying to roast my left leg, the bike never seems to mind the heat. Temperature has never risen above the...

    Thanks all for the thoughts. OEM muffler and cat, mounts seem secure with minimal flex in the bushings. Will probably pull them off just to shake them around and verify the mounts.

    Wasn't thinking...

    The ride post re-torque of the top engine mount bolts showed no difference. Harmonic vibration comes on at 4K and steadily gets worse above that.

    Tried with or without top and side cases. Pulled...

    I will say the little 400 is awesomely civilized around town, but I do lots of freeway riding and any time spent near the 7k redline is buzzy. +1 tooth up front helped quite a bit when holding 70 on...

    Read through the other 4k rpm vibe posts on the site... Only fix I haven't tried is to loosen and re torque the engine mount bolts. Just did and will check in the am.

    I've had a few super smooth...

    Thanks all for the thoughts. Buzz is still there, right on que at 4K rpm. I'll have to pull the plastics again and re-torque the engine mount bolts (though I don't have a socket for the huge torx...

    I just passed 40k miles 2 weeks ago, not sure on the last valve adjustment but the vibe came on so suddenly that I'd swear something let go somewhere.

    I checked all the motor mount bolts and...

    Buzz is everywhere. Definitely in the bars and pegs but also in the seat. I didn't get much above 4K but it seems to follow rpm.

    Sudden onset engine buzz at 4k

    BLUF: doing 50 or so and had the bike suddenly start buzzing like I didn't have a counterweight. Nothing in the oil. No mount issues I could find but fairing cross brace was loose. Buzz comes on...

    I'm actually running a V-Stream that cuts the air right into my visor without much buffeting... though at these temps, a Madstad might be nice

    I can't be the only fool riding in this heat... or maybe I am. Pro tip: the ambient temp sensor reads spot on at 113F, and increments down satisfyingly in 0.9 steps from there...

    While I still haven't been under the GT plastics, I found a couple identical bolts on my parked Kawasaki so I'm going to press on for now. The torx look is from the convex screw head, tapering into...

    Been lurking forever but while I'm here, I would add I have heat issues, left side only, but mostly with wind from the right. Straight on, I get enough air so long as I don't grip the "tank". Only...

    It's definitely a hex socket bolt. Can't tell M6 or M8 but I'll get calipers on it after work. Glad to hear this bike is all torx vs hex... that concours came to me with more than one striped out hex...

    Found a bolt... but from which bike?

    Good day all. Been putting lots of miles on my '13 since I picked it up in January. Until 2 days ago... I shut her down and spot a bolt in the driveway. Everything visible including on the engine is...
