Hey folks. Just bought this 2006 Vee and am trying to get a feel for what's considered normal and what's not. I've had a 2008 wee for a few years and found the engine to be very smooth. This Vee on the other hand, besides having a clear case of clutch chudder (which I am going to fix with the Werks basket when I get the time), it also has some pretty good vibration throughout the rpm range, especially at high rpm. I thought it was tire balance, but it's not. It's engine...when I pull the clutch in at speed, it stops. So, what I'm wondering is, can the clutch problem cause high rpm vibration? I was talking to Terry at Werks about it and he suggested the possibility that it's the stator magnets but I'm getting good voltage output. I haven't actually looked at them yet. The third option is that it's normal. Thanks for your thoughts on this.
