Sarcasm is my automatic response to stupidity
Currently Using GS150R |Ford Figo|Mahindra Rodeo]
Splendor | RX100 | Kinetic Honda DX 1995 | TVS XL |TVS Astra| Bajaj M 80 | Kinetic Safari | Honda Activa | Kinetic Spark
This method will reduce the resonance which is happening at the 3.5k to 4k RPM range in GS150R..
Our GS brother VIKSHE has noticed it by using rubber washers in between the Silencer connecting bolts has reduced this resonance completely..
I too had tried in my bike and the result is same..
So, with his help I'm posting the pictures for your reference..
ALL CREDIT GOES TO VIKSHE.. Thanks friend..
Loosen bolt nuts on the marked area using Wrench and Hexagonal Spanner (14mm).,While removing the bolts hold the silencer with leg, dont let it to hang...
Put a rubber washer in between (It's easily available in any automobile shop., I'd one readily with me) and tighten the bolt nuts., That's it.,You're done...
instruction on fuel tank coat with gold ,bcoz govt increses the fines and panalty to huge extent
If you observe similar mountings with other manufacturers ( 125 cc onwards) have ruber mountings(Cylinder enscapulated) to hold silencer , GS doesn't, suzi has just tightened with nut and bolt, also when your are in that RPM range you touch silencer with your right foot( without footwear better, take care to drive safely on road), it will be vibrating like a hell and as these are mounted on the arm that vibes are amplified with engine vibes causing resonanace in that perticular range and passed to other body parts.
Can you specify which rubber (part no ) you mentioned to the shop and for which make bike.as this part will be heating considerably , that part should be thermally reliable and withstand vibrations...
If some body can find better solution ..pls share.
Now Suzi... should pay me some royalty... ..LOL . enjoy the ride.
