    Hello fellow bikers,

    I'm facing a vibration problem on the bike which can be felt through the footpegs and handlebars when cruising and hard acceleration from 6000RPM to 7500RPM. The vibrations sort of feels like riding through small rocks. Vibrations are gone when clutch is pulled in. The bike is smooth when it's outside of the 6-7.5k RPM range. I know vibrations are normal for 3cyl bikes but the vibrations at this RPM range is enough to damage my phone's camera stabilization module and gives me numb limbs only after 1 hour of ride.

    I've changed the clutch thinking it's broken but everything was fine when I opened it up. So I did the upgrades anyways. I've brought it to the local agent as well but the problem still persists.

    Bike setup as below :
    Akrapovic Ti full system (no baffle & de-cat)
    Gecko Friction plates
    Gecko Steel plates
    Extreme Creations Clutch Basket
    Brand new clutch boss (original Yamaha)
    EBC HD clutch springs
    Puig Engine sliders
    R&G full engine cover
    CO value @ 14-14-14



    Bike details:
    2014 MT-09
    Bike used in Tropical country
    Current mileage 33222km
    First noticed vibrations - 22000km
    Bike serviced every 3000km with Castrol Power 1 10W-40
    New NGK spark plugs @ 25k km
    New OEM air filter @ 28k km
    New OEM sprocket @ 28k km
    New DID 525 gold chain @ 25k km
    New OEM rear sprocket @ 32k km
    Changed clutch system at 32k km
    Throttle body balancing & cleaning @ 32k km
    Michelin Road 5 @ 32k km


    I've tried lowering the CO values to 6-4-6 and the vibrations seems to be less but it's still there.

    Really appreciate if anyone has any idea on what could be wrong or have any possible fixes to share.

    CCT was replaced under recall. Never did anything else to it after that. And no abnormal ticking noise from the CCT

    No vibrations when in neutral, clutch in while bike rolling. Virbations are more pronounced from 3rd gears onwards under load, but it's there as well on 1st and 2nd gear, jsut not as pronounced.

    I meant with the bike stationary, in neutral. You said the TB's were balanced. Who did it and are you sure they're correct? Is the idle steady?
    It's starting to sound like the problem is on the driven side of the gearbox. Which is strange if you've just replaced the clutch.
    I don't remember where the clutch dampers are located. If they're in the clutch boss, that could be where to look. The Yamaha unit isn't the best.
    There's a thread in here somewhere about modifying the dampers.

    TB were done at the dealer. It's jsut dirty to begin with and never had any issues with idling. The basket dampeners were still ok without much free play. So I didn't change it with the WR450 dampers like what the other threads suggested. But then, I don't think the dampeners would cause such heavy vibrations, would it?
