Warp 9" Motor Vibration at Higher RPMs

1640 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Woodsmith
Has anyone seen issues with their motor starting to vibrate as the RPMs increase? I am guessing this is happening due to a slightly unbalanced hub/flywheel.

Any suggestions on how to diagnose/resolve?

I don't have a TAC attached so can't gauge the RPMs but it continues to get worse the higher the RPMs. Everything still works-- I am just having to run in a higher gear than is probably optimal in order to keep the vibration down...

Actually it seems like it has been fairly consistent (only just recently got it up and running and the vibration has been there since the first time I took it out). Based on your comments it sounds like this is fairly common. Thanks for the steps for balancing-- I will pull the motor and see if that helps!
