    I stuffed 3 legnths of wire rope into the bars and they shook noticeably less. Am using a 212 predator and it shakes the bars pretty good at idle.
    I think the stuff was 3/8. Heavy weld cable would work too.

    I ask because I've heard this several times and know a lot of people buy billet..... I left mine stock and its really smooth..... Only other thing I'd guess at are the clutches chosen--i used a tav belt converter thingy

    Jaguar, I used what I had on hand and it helped.

    Racie- the engine is completely stock other than jetting and intake/ exhaust changes, I even still use the governor. Maybe the newer engines are a lot better, mine is one of the first ones out. The "Clutch" is a V belt set-up- very light weight and runs true.

    At this point the vibes are under contol. The bike is a joy to ride- comfy and strong acceleration thanks to the 3speed hub and that motor.
