    Default RT Vibration Damper?

    Thanks for your detailed video. Is this Damper something I should be adding to my 2016 Spyder RT Limited? What difference is it going to make?

    .

    Many of us love the way it eliminates any belt vibration.

    I'd have to say, this tensioner (for want of a better term) got rid of vibrations I didn't know were there. My RT now goes down the road, and rides more like a car instead of a motorcycle.

    If I install your vibration remover, do I lower the belt tension down too? and to what?

    I talked to the dealer where I purchased my spyders and the service manager told me that they only installed one of the BRP vibration removers in the past.
    This dealer will sell 50-60 spyders a year, how is it I am the only person with this problem?

    Sorry I didn't see this before now. The belt harmonics are kind of strange on the RT. Our 14 RT didn't start vibrating until about 5k miles were put on it. So, it is possible that some people don't ryde enough to experience it. Also, since it comes on gradually, and is of a different nature for each Spyder, it doesn't bother some people.
    My suggestion would be to purchase one and install it on whichever RT that is worse and see how much an improvement it made. Then you can decide whether to fix the other one.
