Dunno if it's just me but my 2000 R1 seems to vibrate a lot in the lower rev-range, around 5000rpm or less. It doesn't feel smooth either until I've got above it.

I've changed the end-can but not got around to re-jetting it as yet - could this be what's causing the "roughness"?

thx
Chris

Are the carbs In-Sync? Synchronized(sp?) is what I meant. How many miles on the bike and til the next valve adjustment?

HP is a poor substitute for experience and ability.

Hmm the bike only has about 1600 miles on it (guy I got it from never used it) and it had been standing for about 7 months before I picked it up. Started fine (after a charge ;) Maybe I'll get a carb balancer and check it.

What mileage is the first service?

thx
Chris

I've got a 2001 R1. From day one I've experienced vibration through the bars. Many sites that I have been on have riders that experienced the same thing. I've gone as far as replacing the grips and purchasing gloves with more padding. I'm still looking for a remedy.
