Postby InfiniteLimits88 » February 7th, 2004, 2:09 pm

Hey guys, im having a slight or a major problem with my 97' vmax600 SX...everytime i engage the clutch and start moving its fine...i can go as fast or as slow as i want without any problems...but when i let off the throttle it starts to shake like not totally shaking but u can feel it..its not bad or anything but is this a major problem?? I have no idea what it is...ive changed belts...tighted every bolt on the sled(engine mounts..etc.)What is making the sled do this? Is it fixable? plz give me some infomation on this!

Thanks

Check your wear bars and make sure that you haven't bent one of them. Sometimes a shake or vibration can be something like that vice an engine related item. If you cross railroad tracks, it's much easier to bend one up than you think.
If you are in the ditch, upside down, and the sled's on top of you, you are doing something wrong.....

Check the track tension. A loose track will vibrate like crazy.

Yep, that's the first thing that I would check is the track tension/rear suspension. Under power, that equipment will follow the torque. But once you let off, then it starts to free wheel; taking it's own path.
