Warp 9" Motor Vibration at Higher RPMs

1643 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...

A John Wayland trick is to put a washer under one of the pressure plate bolts, and move it to different bolts until vibration is minimized.

With mine, I took off my pressure plate and rotated it 180 degrees, problem solved.
