I did some searching on this with no results.



I love my Warrior, but the motor just has too much vibration for me. I am going to be doing more long distance riding in the future, so I was trying to see if there is a way to rubber mount the engine. I was checking to see if anybody had tried it to date.

I know they all vibrate to some extent, but it sounds like yours vibrates more than usual.I was going to suggest a good dynotune for your PC3 but I see you have a hot rod with cams and 110ci kit. A good dynotune after cleaning the filters and cleaning/gapping the plugs (and checking the coil wires) would certainly help. But it sounds like you aresaying it vibrates a lot at idle and on the road? If yes then it might also behelpful to havethe trees squared-up maybe it came loose? A crappy or out-of-balance rear or front tirecan do that too.

It has always vibrated, it's just finally gotten on my nerves. I know I am running rich, and really need a tune on my PCIII. I have been waiting on a set of pipes, but have been having a hard time getting something I want. I have to take a weekend and ride several hours to get to a shop to tune me anyways. Come to think of it, I had to change out one set of coil wires, I never did the other. I have the wire in the garage, I will have to get on that. I have pretty new plugs in it, but they could have fouled up quick given I am running rich. I'll wait to decide the future of my bike until I get the pipes and tune...I would have to get things ready for a sale anyways if I go that route.

Does it shakes at idle and you hear a soft rattling noise coming more on the left side? tactactactac....
Yeah, I can usually hear what I thought was the rockers. And yes, is shakes voilently at idle.

I don't think any kind of rubber motor mounts are the cure to your problem. You need to tune up your bike and get it running right.

Check the engine stay bolts with a torque wrench OR a spark cable might be faulty.
Once you start with the basics, you keep on eliminating one by one the problems.

I had the same problem, the bolts were a little lose and fixing them cured the nasty vibration. However, from what you say... it shakes violently at idle.
Since you are running rich, you might not notice if a wire does not have a good contact. I'm curious what Mike or Alan would say about the next step.

Well, as above, a good dynotune after cleaning the filters and cleaning/gapping the plugs (and checking the coil wires) would certainly help. It solves the heeby-geebies at idle in lots of cases. Gotta admit it looks cool with that wide rear fender jumping up and down cold, huh? OK maybe not to everyone

I like the look of the shaking at idle...it makes the bike look like a real beast.

I will tune everything when I can, I have to find somebody to make me a set of pipes first...my propipe is trashed.
