A vibration occurs to the left side of the bike, not right side where is exhaust.
When bike is running idle then I noticed that left mirror shakes more than right mirror.

It is balance shaft reason of this?

the cold idle solenoids make a racket. Many remove them as part of an airbox mod.

You know you can get the ECU to do a self diagnosis. It will tell you if there are problems with various sensors, pickup/ignition coils, injectors and fuel pump.

Hi guys!

I have also Drifter 1500 and factory pipes with factory Drifter connections but still bike shakes.
Do I must to loose little these connection nuts so exhaust connection is not so tight to the bike?

 Also I have removed some inner plates from the baffle, is this one reason why my bike shakes.
If everything is strictly OEM, then you have a problem unrelated to the pipes. NO you don't loosen the exhaust nuts, that would cause an exhaust leak which will impact the bike negatively. The pipes might shake but if they are properly rubber mounted most of that vibration is not transmitted to the biked.

I only have the 1500...sold the 800 a little while ago...the 1500 is much better in the coastal hills due to much greater torque and hp and it's also more stable for me on the highway....I don't have to down shift at all anymore on the hills...didn't get to go today, though, as I am behind on my research harvest and decided to work this weekend to get everything caught up.  I was able to finish everything today and just need to spend tomorrow cleaning up equipment and getting it put back away....

Just spotted a Vn 800 drifter trike for sale in Ontario. Kijiji Ad ID 1367163425
Looks cool and didn't realize that they could be triked. Thought that I would pass this on incase some VDR's  would be interested.

when you turn on the key/ignition, do you hear the fuel pump prime up for a couple of seconds?  if not, then you may be looking at a bad fuel pump in the tank....just a thought....

The more I listen to mine when cold the more I think it's coming from the piston skirts slapping in the cylinders. When the pistons warm up, they expand, reducing the clearance between the skirts and the cylinder walls. It's not unusual for pistons to be machined slightly out of round by design. Once warmed, they expand to a round shape. Normal oil film on the cylinder walls acts as a cushion and prevents wear and damage. It seems to take about a minute for the noise to diminish to an 'acceptable' level. I've gotten used to it and have learned to love the sound as unique and as a sign that I'm about to get out on the open road.
