Bad vibrations from the new Suzuki Hayabusa

I bought a Suzuki Hayabusa K8 six months ago. Since about 400 miles it has developed bad vibrations through the whole of the motorcycle. It vibrates through the pegs handlebars, tank and seats etc... Resulting in numb fingers and hands. It has now done 1075 miles and it's just as bad. I had it back to my local dealer - Powersport  of Bradford who got an area...

hayabusa vibration

Hi! have read that some people are having vibration problems with their Hayabusa K8's.

I have had the same problem with my bike and it started at 11750 miles and it is as you described it exactly. The problem was easily solved in my case as the bottom rear engine mount bolt broke off. The bolt is situated behind the side stand bracket an is 250mm x 12mm bolt with nut and goes through the frame, gearbox and frame and is easily changed in about 15 mins. To renew this bolt you need to remove the side stand bracket complete by removing the 2 10mm allen bolt and remove the allen bolt from the trim on the right side. 

At the time of finding this problem I was unable to get the bolt from the dealer and so I sourced a bolt from my local bolt sullier as a temp fix.

The fix was instant and all signs of vibration is now gone.
