Sounds like a loose nut holding onto the handle bars...







just kidding, I had something like that but before I got it to the dealer , it stopped and hasn't come back. It was usually around 3-5k rpm's

Hi Skullyeb,

mine's an A1 and I weigh about 104 Kg (1m96 height), from personal experience having travelled 820 km in a day recently (in the heat of Southern Spain), there is a slight vibration being transmitted through the seat, I believe its on account of the seat resting on the tank, that and the fact that the seat is crap!!!.

Yes, you're right, you ass goes numb, as well as your balls and your knob!!!!

I have to get me a Corbin seat!!

GibZx12,

Hi, I think it is a common item with the 12, mine does it too now and again, it also sometimes amplifies the road noise to the point of distraction, then it goes away. Reckon it has a life of it's own! (Christine?).

Must admit I've never ridden it that far that everything goes numb! Makes the mind boggle!!

Does the fuel load make any difference if you think it is the tank?

Sounds like the Corbin is essential! 24 hr delivery? or are you starting to enjoy it? 200MPH vibrator! Hee! Hee! Sorry.

Speak to you later

Regards

Ted
