I hear that with enough weight... you can kill the vibration right out of anything.
I know I am a noob but Ill be damned if my 620 rxc isnt one of the most fun toys I have ever owned and I have found out everything I needed to know by just researching forums
vibe complaints are from wusses
yeah it vibes but you really want to feel vibes come ride with me on a mountainbike not only do you have to pedal your ass up the hill you have to sit on skiny little seat waahh ride down some rocky 8" wide singletrack and any motorcycle seems plush
thanks to all of you who post (even the redundant and underinformed, or informationaly challenged) I have learned a great deal and had a fun time doing it
I rode my old (pre counter-balanced single)XT500 Yamaha to Alaska and Mexico. I found the vibration on that bike less objectionable than the XS650 Yamaha twin or the pre rubber-mount Sportsters.
I do wish someone would give us a true wide-ratio six-speed, so we could have a rock-crawling low and an engine-loafing high at the same time. Right now the 5-speeds in the Honda XR650L and the BMW F650GS have more spread than anything from KTM.
Where do you find the time to sit down and write all that, creeper? Federal employee, or insomniac?
Self-employeed with no clock or wristwatch. The closest time piece I need is a calendar.
It helps to have copped a bit of an attitude too. Consider it a form of therapy for me, and entertainment for you.
I loved the concise and venomous diatribe on the 640 "Vibration issue"
I am a female 640 Adventure rider and I gotta ask....since WHEN is vibration a bad thing???
It's a THUMPER, for chrissakes!
Also, as a vintage british single (and twin) rider, (BSA, Triumph, Norton)
.."I got your vibration right here!" (grabs crotch for emphasis)
I also wonder..Did this individual not ride or research this model prior to plunking down the Benjamins?
And about the seat height? I am 5'9"..did this individual not sit on one first?
One CAN adjust the suspension a bit, and therefore the seat height easily..but this is one of the reasons why the bike is so plush..it's called suspension.
In all fairness,this poor noob (like myself) had the nerve to post (an apparently inflamatory) query on a public forum, and deserves a little tenderness, if not a bit of good natured ribbing.
The bike is NOT a "piece" of anything but engineering genius,not perfect, but (in MY humble opinion).. the best thing out there for my intended riding.:rabia

Oh, the next one's not far, and I've got it, but you may have to venture into the Crush for it. Hmmm, that reminds me, I'm out of beer.
[edit..] I am blessed! My Beloved just called to ask what kind she should buy for me. The thankful man is a happy man, no?
And that would be "SNPA, please"
This is not about one n00b... not two n00bs, but many less than razor sharp, LC4 n00bs, over a few years. Its a cumulative kinda thing eh?
As you can imagine, concise, well written, detailed n00b questions are appreciated and encouraged. Perceived intelligence always plays heavily on my responses... if any.
On the other hand, "My KTM vibrates" or "My KTM is too tall"... "How do I fix it? ", promotes sufficient annoyance that, over time, "commentary" such as mine will on occasion, pop to the surface.
Should you choose to grab your crotch in a fit of vibratory ecstasy
and even better, photograph it and post it here in Thumperville, it would go along way towards offsetting my occasional annoyance with positive n00b reinforcement. Possibly for years to come.
Thanks... and best 'O everything,
I seldom go into OC... so you may have to give me the heads up.
That a girl !!
This thread has massive potential.
Posted mostly b/c I wanted to demo that neeto scrolling effect...
Are you saying there is intellegence among motorcyclists?
I thought we were all alike...
I am he as you are he and you are me and we are all together?
I wonder if it would make creeper happy if we made this thread the repository of all such posts?
... no response to help... then:
Somebody stop me!
PS - I have hope, he did respond to one question
Nothing to see here; move along please.
PS - did a search in Thumpers for "vibration" and got 250 hits (max) and didn't even get back past 2005! ("vibes" got into 2004 before maxing out...)
Vibration? The LC4 is a modern luxury liner.
Walk a mile in some old shoes. Spend an hour on an ancient Husky open classer, or an Ossa, or a Maico. Or a even a 441 Victor. Then come on back and we'll talk about vibration. I have no problemo on an LC4 (except when they blow up).
Good rant Creep. 8.8 of 10 on the nekkid in the clocktower with a rifle scale.
The dude was nekkid?
Personal business below.
Somebody please stop him
all in fun David
