    Re: The great vibration mystery

    It vibrates 3500-4500 RPM, in all gears?
    Have you tried to shift into neutral or pulling the clutch in after getting up to speed on a down hill to isolate an engine problem from a chassis problem?

    Pffft, sometimes when it's cold I hold open my throttle with my left hand so that I can warm up my right hand on the engine.

    Good eye.
    Outside of the lame description. Depending on mileage and condition this Rex looks like an excellent buy.

    I'd check out the forks though. Never seen anything like it.

    Have three made. Cut one down to the narrowest width possible and hide it on the bike somewhere. Tape it to an exposed wiring harness or to the frame with electrical tape.

    It's called 'single point pollution'. It's easier to scrub the pollution from one big stack than it is from 100,000 tail pipes. At least that's the theory. But electric cars are far from 'green'.

    No, those can't be worn under a helmet. It's for protecting what's left of your hearing while working.

    There's all sorts of shit going on in Mass. and they're now looking at old paperwork and pulling licenses.
