Many motorcyclists complain about numbness in the hand due to high engine vibrations. For a smooth ride, a regular bike repair is very essential. Vibration is very common while riding a bike, but excess vibration can make the condition worse over a long ride.
If you notice extreme vibrations through the handgrips, footrest, or seat, you need to check your bike thoroughly. Inspect for any loose or damaged or missing parts. Worn-out tires can also be a reason behind the vibration. Sometimes, the bike will vibrate depending upon the design like a twin-cylinder or single will have more vibration than a multi-cylinder bike. If your bike vibrates upon acceleration could be due to the deranged tire or uneven tread or rear sprocket a twisted rim or spiking brake. To fix the vibration in your bike why not download the Onedios app and raise a request for a bike repair expert.
Here are few things you can do to reduce the vibration in your bike:
1.Replacing your air filters:
If your bike starts to vibrate excessively or you hear a bursting noise coming from the engine section, it could be due to the dirty air filter. This can damage the spark plug. Therefore, clean the blocked filters regularly or replace them if required. If your bike repair is overdue for servicing, avoid the irritation and discomfort of bike breakdowns and malfunctions. Raise a service request on the OneDios App in a few clicks, without having to call multiple people or search for phone numbers.
2. Fill or replace your engine oil:
Lack of engine oil or old dirty oil can be a reason behind vibration. Oil is required to lubricate the parts of the engine. If there is less oil or the old oil gets thicken it won’t let the oil do its work. This can increase the bike vibration and can cause numbness in the hand.
3. Inspect your wheel chains:
When the chain is too tight it puts a burden on the engine. Excess of burden can create a high amount of engine strain. This can also vibrate the engine. Therefore, it is important to regularly lubricate and adjust the chain.
4. Structure of Disks and Brakes:
It is important to inspect the disks and brakes regularly. They should be aligned appropriately, to reduce vibration. When the brakes are tight, it losses the grip and also puts force on the rear wheel. This makes the bike run warmer, which increases the bike vibration.
5. Valve Tappet noise:
For proper engine performance, the valve tappet should be at an appropriate setting. A regular bike repair expert will also check the setting of your valve tappets. The inappropriate fitting issues can be a reason for shaking or vibrations.
