I traded a 2016 Trophy SE for a new 2019 800 XRt. I’ve noticed a very pronounced vibration in the seat and bars that comes in around 4300 rpms and leaves around 5000rpms. Since my Trophy was very smooth I was wondering if this is something peculiar to the 800.

My 2012 800XC does not do that. It is smooth. I would suspect tires.

It does it in every gear at that particular rpm.

Yes sir. Is to me too. I’m a long distance truck driver currently in Oklahoma headed home tomorrow. I’ve spent a couple thousand miles meditating on it. I’m wondering if something was left loose when it was assembled at the dealership. I carried my Trophy into the same dealership for the 20,000 mile service just before heading out west. Before I got 200 miles stuff started falling off. Had to turn around and limp her back home. Maybe that same mechanic assembled this one.

Well....I found my vibration and I’m both glad and a little red faced. I decided to check everything before going to the dealer. The most pronounced area was in the seat so I started there. When I removed the pillion seat I immediately saw the problem. The seat had been installed without inserting the isolators into their respective sockets. Or in other words the seat was setting directly on the frame amplifying the normal engine resonance. Installing the seat correctly gave me a brand new bike.

Glad to hear your problem is solved, no matter silly the solution was.
