JNS aux light bracket vibration, any solutions? (Emailed them 2 weeks ago) tried felt tape, but didn’t solve it
By - Life-Ad-2032
I havent had any issues with mine. Used it for probably a year.
It is a big single cylinder - you're always going to have some sort of vibration.
Dare I ask, have you done it up properly?
I was wondering that myself, plate is angled with so the platform is leveled, slid back, and bolted tight with a wrench. Did you toque your a specific number, but washers at the bottom?
I didn't torque mine but I did tighten it and lock tight it as I will likely never take it off.
From the wheel up it's nut head, washer, mud guard, JNS front fairing brace, JNS auxiliary lighting bracket, and then into the slots it's supposed to go.
Note, I did buy longer screws to allow for both brackets.
When you say vibration what do you mean? Does it feel loose or have any wiggle room?
Mine doesn't have any wiggle room and it's solid. Never noticed any vibration / anything out of the ordinary on it.
I'm going for a ride tomorrow so will specifically take note of how mine feel.
Definitely a resonance. Here’s a video, the humming sound is the noise and it’s from the bracket, goes away anytime I touch it. I know there has to be a way to solve it, even though it’s a vibrating thumper[clip](https://youtube.com/shorts/ybGlqgNY10s?feature=share)
Thats weird! I've never heard anything like that on my dr650... the ride today was low speed dirt and highway speeds. No issues with my JNS at all.
I'm at a loss for what it could be...
Maybe try giving it a ride with and without the spotlights on it to see if something like that might be the issue? (If they're easy to remove or not)
Otherwise I'm not sure, sorry mate.
Mystery solved with your help. After confirming it was not normal, I isolated the vibration by running it without anything, then the bracket, then the Baja design lights. Found out it was the Baja design lights. Solved it by putting a plastic washer under the squadron bracket and that solved the issue; for anyone else that see’s this
Woohoo! Glad I could help. Those JNS brackets are solid. Enjoy the ride and stay shiny side up :)
Ditch the flimsy JNS stuff and make one your own.
Maybe one day
Well, you asked for a solution, it's up to you when you apply it.
Do these things make seeing the road better, or only make cars see you better?
Both... but mainly for night time use on/off road without street lights and no cars around.
Usually if you're on a trip and get caught out with no light :)
Ok cool. I'm looking for some light that really increase visibility. When I ride on the highway at night I can barely see the road. I already put I brighter bulb in. It helped a little. But I want to REALLY see the road
You can get handle bar mounts that will sit around the barkbusters, or these JNS auxiliary light brackets. Depends on the size of the fuel tank, if you're running a 24L tank or more then the bracket won't fit.
I just bought some cheap LED spotlights off ebay for ~$20 AU. Wired them in myself. Works a treat!
I have the Baja design squadron sports and am running the skene dimmer which allows me to run them at 20% for running lights and 100% when I toggle the high-beam switch. It’s like turning on the sun, would recommend. With them on I am hovering around 14.1 volts
The centre stand let you make off road easily ? Thinking about put one on mine
