Hi Guys

My friends Raptor 60 is shaking badly
he crashed it and replaced the main shaft, spindle, tail tube, tail drive shaft, flybar, some bearings and other parts
can you suggest anything to try / replace?
the whole machine shakes, the tail jumps up and down, it still shakes when in throttle hold mode for about a second until the head speed slows down then it smooths out

thanks
ted

with all new shafts installed, try loosening the tail mount and backing off the boom 1-2mm. Have seen this before. The torque tube is bottoming out in the cups they engage. If everything else is straight that should fix her.

Make sure the engine is aligned properly as well. If the clutch shoes is crooked in the clutch bell you can get this kind of vibration as well.
