MECHANICAL AND TECHNICAL THREADS / Re: Vibration

I think it could be your kick stand rubber has worn out or even fell off.  When the stand is now retracted it rests on the metal frame and that caused the vibration in my case so get that checked out.

old mechie trick.
While the scoot/bike car is standing still....in a quite garage....you start hitting the panels, parts, etc with the soft side of your closed fist. Try to initiate the vibration without breaking something. Lightly tap other parts like the exhaust with a rubber hammer. Just slightly....you want to try and get the rattle or vibration to show itself. (its like tapping a car's dashboard to find that irritating noise)

In 99% of the cases this works.

If it does not....you are either not tapping in the right place or hard enough to initiate the vibration.

If you dont find or hear anything, the vibration is associated with your scoot riding/moving and might point to a more serious problem. then its best to take to someone that can check it out for you.

But the good news is....a shudder or vibration is usually something minor, unless what is vibrating or shuddering fall off or fail. Then you know what was the cause.  :rofl:

good idea to check the break calipers as well....they do wear and they do start to rattle.

I did a bit of research. All this is linked to a LinkedIn database breach in 2016 and our recent SA government database breach last year Oct.
In both cases more than 31 Million user details was leaked to a public domain.
The password that this oke sent me was one i was using in 2008....if he used a recent one I would have literally kakked my pants... :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

The problem is all the above mentioned things can cause vibration, so it's really hard for us to tell you what's wrong because we haven't actually ridden or seen the scooter

Check the rear wheel balance weights, maybe one has fallen off, indicated by a bit of remaining double sided tape or a clean spot.

I had a similar thing happen.On mine it turned out to be a combination of worn rollers and a worn rear clutch pulley.
