    Is your visor loose? I mean can you feel a play when you shake the visor? Loose visor is a common problem with all Pulsars, you can use old pieces of tube as dampers around the bolts to reduce vibration. Well, Bajaj is no Kawasaki and it'll never be as smooth as a Jap bike.

    I know that.
    A friend of mine has a honda cbr 150r.
    Everytime I drive it, its a pleasure but with less torque ofcourse. What I did now, I used rubber gourmets in every bolt of my headlamp assembly.
    Vibes have reduced drastically, but I still get irritated by the 5% remaining vibes.

    Hi. I am using the bike for the last 15 days and have done 400 kms. I haven't yet experienced vibrations while riding but whenever I encounter the slightest bump on the road, I hear a rattling sound from the headlight panel, as of it were loose.I inspected the panel but couldn't find any thing loose. I suspect the engine vibrations and the stiff suspension is making the fittings loose.This is increasing day by day and is really irritating. And today I noticed the rattle from the rear as well. Does tightening the Allen screws of the headlight panel help or I'll have to stuff things like you have mentioned?

    I am using the bike for the past 15 days . I was expecting the vibrations so no issue with that. I have driven 400 kms till date . Whenever I encounter even the slightest bump on the road , there is a small rattling sound from the front panel . However what is worrying me is that day by day, this rattling sound seems to be increasing. I inspected the bike and I don't see or feel any bolt is loose or anything like that . Now today , sounds are coming even from the rear panel . What I am guessing is that the vibrations along with the stiff suspension is making the fittings loose . I am planning to buy an allen key set today as it is not provided with the tool kit and the head light and instrument assembly is fitted with allen screws .will tightening help or I'll have to resort to stuffing ad mentioned here. Has anybody else encountered this problem and solved it ?.It's really disheartening on a bike this new and going by others experience I don't think the service centre will be of any help. Please let me know . Thanks in advance

    Tightening bolts will solve the issue for now but expect the vibes to return by another 100 kms. If you're the diy kind of person then I'd suggest you to spend a few hours on vibration damping at home. You need the right set of tools (2mm allen keys, star screw drivers and a 10mm box or ring spanner) and a heckload of patience to separate out the multitude of plastic parts from the console.

    Once you do that, get hold of a big roll of double sided tape. Cut 4 cm long pieces. Fold each piece in half and pierce a hole in the center of the tape. The piercing is to make sure that the bolt goes through the piece easily. Place these folded and pierced pieces in between two plastic parts at the points where the bolts hold them. Do this for all bolting points. Reinstall all bolts and put everything back together. Vibes damped to 0! So basically you're doing the job of rubber grommets with one added advantage: double tapes are sticky so they hold onto the plastic much stronger.

    I think this diy is better than the one i originally posted because:

    1. The exact point of vibration can be damped instead of the whole assembly as one unit.

    2. Double tapes are small and their material nature do not expose them too much to water from rain or washing sessions and even in such a case waterlogging does not occur.

    3. This method can also be applied to the tank extensions (for those with vibes in those areas) as there are 14 outer bolt points (12 which require a star screw driver and 2 on top of the tank which require allen keys) and a few inner ones. The empty space inside the extensions are way too much to keep stuffing. Double tape is the future!

    I was facing the vibrations earlier but my mechanic put threads under the bolts of console and some sponge kind of material inside the headlight console. Now the vibrations are gone forever.

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.
    Can u post a picture of these rubber things ? And how much do they cost?
