    Default Getting rid of console vibrations on Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS

    Hello NSians! It's been great pleasure owning the pulsar 200 NS for the past 2.5 months and 2200 kms. Although it's one deadly package with excellent features, it's still a machine. And a machine is bound to run into small yet irritable issues. One among the very few issues I found on the P200NS ownership thread was that of console vibrations, pretty irritative ones at that. So I came up with an effective solution to get rid of upto 95% of them! Here's how....

    1. Locate this 3mm 'allen' bolt on either side of the headlamps and remove them.

    2. Now that it's done, the 'visor' can be pulled out a little from the top, like so..

    you can find the visor locked into place at the points encircled in red. Just pull the visor out with a little force and it should 'pop out'. Apparently, it's held in place by rubber washers (as I'd like to call it). This is what the front would look like without it.

    3. You can find a lot (I mean it) of empty spaces within the headlamp arrangement. Start stuffing those places with old cloth, or sponge. I'd recommend something much rougher/harder than sponge like an old wiping cloth which has become rough after continuous use. This is because, when it's clumped and stuffed into the empty spaces, it makes sure the parts don't vibrate due to resonance.

    Looks pretty jugaad now doesn't it? Make sure you leave the bolt slots to themselves. Stuff into the rest of the spaces. I've used a blackish sponge in last pic right in the middle because the top-mid portion of the visor is translucent and once everything is bolted back into place, it shouldn't look like an eyesore.

    Tip: It's not limited to stuffing cloth from front. More bolts can be removed from the sides to 'discover' new empty spaces / loose stuff inside the headlight assembly.

    4. Reverse the visor removal process. You should find it a little harder to put it back in but a little force wouldn't harm anything. Tighten all the bolts on the headlamp area and you're ready to go!!

    Note: Though this whole process looks pretty jugaad, it worked out really well for me! Like I said, 95% of the console vibrations are gone!

    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    If you're really interested (and if the vibes still don't subside after doing the above steps), remove every bolt on the headlight assembly. You can find that the assembly consists of a clump of wires connecting the headlight and the console. I didn't wanna mess it up because I usually open stuff up that I can't fix back. Was experimenting with the front part and found the job to be successful enough. And yes, do this only if you have any vibes. If not, this jugaad might bring in new ones!

    I also tried the same kinda DIY some time back (I guess in the first month of ownership back in August). The thing with cloth and sponge is that they retain moisture for looooooong.. and I really mean loooooong!! After you give your bike a wash (which I do on a weekly basis), the visor starts to fog. This is also harmful for the metal parts inside the assembly (bolts and clamps) and the prolonged moisture can hamper the internal circuit too. Also, and above all, the cloth and sponge would start to decay over some time leading to foul smell

    So, at the end of it, I bought some rubber gourmets from a hardware shop and installed them for all the bolts that I can see in the head lamp assembly and that worked for me.

    i would rather suggest you to use a water proof foam called heatlon or some thing call Damping that is used in the cars, adding the cloth or sponge will make sure that when the bike is exposed to water this will be wet for long and that would certainly effect the metal parts around it and also will make sure that the plastic will go brittle.

    You can use small thermocol and insert them around the screw holes and rubber pins. That worked fine for me.
