vibrations in cub derrivatives?

Post by drago76 » Tue Aug 01, 2017 8:18 am

I have an JMStar jsd100-6 a-la honda wave chinese copy.
97cc 4-stroke, semiauto clutch, 4 gears, so on.
428 chain ( i think, better choice than 420 who is used in hondas, and often break during ride),
excellent small bike , especially for its low price ( get it for 640 euro, new, yet produced about 7 years ago :D).
but - one of things, beside of bit small top speed ( about 80 - 85 kph) i do not like in it.
that was vibrations, especially on rpm higher than 5000 -5500

in short distances, and in city it was non important, but on long rides, when you in the saddle for hours and hours, it was no good for healts, and for enjoying travel too.
what is situation in that with honda wave / innova?

other chinese cub-likes?

my next moped i want with small as possible, vibrations...

Can't speak for the Wave (queue SteveW), but the Innova is very smooth.

Check the engine mounting bolts, and the swing arm bolt, are good and tight. If they are loose vibration is very bad on Cubs too.

The Wave 110 is quite smooth too. Just took mine for an "Italian tune up" (meaning riding the nuts of it for 20 minutes), and it wound up to 7-8k without much trouble. I might wear gloves for a long ride, but even for rides over 30 minutes I feel no need and don't feel "buzzy" afterwards.
