    Default slight vibration as I start off in 1st. + another question on motor mounts

    Had my 2017 M109R since March and I love it.

    It had 7000km on it when I got it, Ive got 10,000km on it now.

    Question #1

    I noticed today as I got back home from a ride that, as I turned into my road, in 1st gear, there was a slight vibration as I rounded the corner and got underway. (felt it in the seat of my pants). Once moving a bit faster it went away. Seems to be there as I let out the clutch and it does away after I get more than a few km/h of speed. This is NOT a clutch judder type of feeling.

    Wondering if this is common on the newer bikes ? and what the issue may be ?

    Update--- went back out 40 minutes later and no vibration. All good. Not sure whats up with that, maybe its just the new gear I was wearing gave me a different feel the first time out (LOL)


    Question #2
    Also, does anyone have a good source for the ployurethane engine mounts ? I plan to change the front mounts this winter and im looking for a link to a reliable site than sells them. Id prefer polyurethane to the hard OEM ones used in the top rear mount. I do notice the 3500rpm vibration is a bit worse that I initially recall, not sure it this is linked to issue #1 ?

    thanks in advance to everyone who replies!!

    I don't have the poly mounts so I can not say personally but I think I have read they cause a little more vibration than the OEM. I put the harder OEM mounts up front the last time I changed them. I think they might last longer though.

    Thanks Tom, I may go that route from the dealer. I emailed the guy about the poly ones to see if they take PayPal (site doesnt say) and I got no reply (Im not big on lack of response/service from vendors)

    Well after a 3rd attempt to get an email reply from [email protected], I got zero reply... again, I have to say that getting no reply on a basic email question (3x) regarding payment for a product is very poor customer service and leaves me with zero confidence in the seller, so, I decided to go OEM rear hard mounts up front.

    Called the dealer and they are back ordered. I put the order in so it takes 24-48 hours for Suzuki to provide an expected delivery date. They will have an ETA for me on Friday.

    If that takes too long ill go to Partszilla for them I guess.

    Who'd have thought getting engine mounts would be so difficult.

    I was going to order through billydump as well but didn’t like how they want your credit card information before even giving a price on shipping.... leaves it open for a surprise charge to the credit card

    Although I did email and got a response on shipping costs
