New Pulsar150 handle vibrate.

  • New Pulsar150 handle vibrate.

    I bought a Bajaj Pulsar 2008 150cc few days ago. This bike has a problem from the 1st day, while riding between 40kmph to 60kmph the handle shaking left to right to left…. continuously, if I take off my hands from handle then it vibrate faster and for this reason riding isn’t feel smooth, safe and total bike tremble while ride. If I grab the handle very strongly then it isn’t shaking that much. I complained to the authorized service centre, but they can’t find out why this problem happening.

    Have you guys facing this problem??? Could you give me some tips or advices?

      All Pulsars vibrate a fair bit, be it a P150 or a P220. So its difficult to diagnose the problem that you seem to be having.

      My guess is that you have a case of Pulsariasis
      The vibes aren't dangerous at all though. Just try to forget the Uni's ride characteristics and enjoy your Pulsar man

          One of mechanics from service center told me may be problem cause by the front suspensions. The springs inside in suspensions may be don’t fitting properly or adjust correctly; so next time when you come for the first servicing then I’ll open it and check then re-assemble again, maybe it’ll help.

          There are lots of may be, so I don't sure it'll be right things to do. So guys what should you suggest? Should I open the front suspension?

            A brand new bike cannot have a suspension issue man. The Pulsar's are known to have a very soft front end, but not a faulty one.

            Id suggest riding another Pulsar to check if your bike seems to have a malady or not, before getting your forks opened up...

              @MavericK46:
              Thanks for the quick reply. Yeah I rode another two new pulsars and those aren’t having this problem. They have ultra steady handle on whatever speed.
              This problem feels like my front wheel is heavy “TALL” so handle is shaking.

                dude the bike vibrated like this only if the front suspension has a bend...it mainly happens dude to accidents may be they did not transfer it properly so get the front folks checked it may solve ur problem....the oder thing that could be is wobling in the rear tyre...that also make the hanlde vibrate

                  A bent front wheel can lead to hairy incidents while taking corners. If the bike seems to be kinda bumping up and down while riding straight on an even road, it can be a slightly bent front and/or rear wheel thats causing it.

                  Try taking both your hands off the bars while travelling on a straight and even road and see if the bike starts to move in either direction. A bike with no issues with the wheels/suspension oughta track dead straight...

                    Thanks @sahil_killer and @Maverick46,

                    The bike doesn’t bumping up and down. After 50kmph speed it starts shaking the handle very fast in left right left right (horizontal way)……. even on very butter finished road. I can feel it; it’s shaking and for this reasons total bike also jerk. I tried taking both my hands off the bars while travelling on a straight, bike doesn’t change direction but handle shaking very fast and it’s visible clearly.

                      First check....

                      1. Wheel alignment.

                      2. Wheel Bearings.

                        I also had a somewhat similar problem on my P150.. In my case the front wheel bearing replacement and wheel alignment solved my problem. Also check front wheel tire pressure . It should be within the limits.

                          Thanks @mithun and @abhijeet080808,
                          I’ll check the wheel alignment and bearings soon.

                            Why don't you replace only the wheel and the bearing and test? The problem generally lies in that area....

                              Yes I did (it wasn’t simple because the spear parts cost too expensive here), and found bearing is ok but the alloy’s alignment isn’t ok in center, Changed the total front alloy and everything is ok now.

                              Thanks for help guys.
