I traded my '05 VMX12 for a new '11 VMX17. I find the engine of my VMX17 doesn't run as smoothly as my VMX12. The vibration isn't huge. If I had my VMX12 I would say the carburetors needed to be synchronized. That's the feeling and type of vibration. Has any one else noticed the same? Or should I have my dealer check it out?

Hey Tiger,
if you think the vibs are carbs related, take it back to the dealer to have them check the sync of the carbs under warrenty. I checked the sync on my "relatively new" 2010 Gen2 ( 1500 miles) last week just for grins to see how close they were from the factory; I'm sure the original owner never had them checked. Used my Morgan Carb Tune unit ... they were all spot on the same; no adjustments needed.

Hi. I thought I would give an update. I emailed Yamaha with my thoughts soon after my post. The Yamaha guy said the vibes would diminish after time. After discussing with a few friends we were a bit skeptical. But I have to admit he was right. The vibes did diminish. With almost 6000 kms on the bike the vibes are almost gone.

I have a 2015 vmax and mine does the same thing---must be the way the motors were engineered
