Vibration...

I have a 1985 250 and it seems to vibrate alot even when just idling in neutral. The view in the mirrors are blurred because of the vibration. Is this normal?

Yes but to be vibrating so much that the view in the mirrors is blurred just sitting and idling in neutral without revving the engine. I thought there may be something wrong...

Let off the brakes at a stop. I think when youre off the brake the bike can let some of the vibrations be absorbed. It helps for me on my scooter.

I have 2 machines - a 2002 CMX250 and a 1982 CM250C and neither of them vibrate or run rough. I wonder if both of your cylinders are firing normally.....

My 250 Rebel vibrates like crazy! If it weren't for foam grip covers AND gel palmed gloves I really would not be able to ride the thing. Upper back injury makes my left arm go numb and I actually cannot use the turn signals. But, the stock mirrors are very sturdy and do not blur, but cheap aftermarket ones would really blur.

Funny thing, my Vulcan 500 didn't seem to have any vibration in the handlebars until I installed some lightweight Emgo mirrors. They blur really bad and now I can feel a little bit a vibration in the handlebars.

Was 2002 Rebel, now 2008 Vulcan 500
