Question Driveline vibration....only in second gear



Driveline vibration happening under anything but light load ONLY in second gear from 1500-2800rpm or so.

I think my flex disc is ok. Don't know about the driveshaft center bearing, but if it were one of these, wouldn't it happen in all gears?

^^ lol thanks for telling me what I stated to begin with.

Thanks rider, I guess that's most likely what it is.

If you know everything, don't ask for advice.

Drivelines are really sensitive, and 1800-2300 rpms is what speed range? If you're going that speed in first you have a lot more load therefore less play in driveline and less vibration. CSB is the second thing to check after flex disc, so go check it.
