2016 kawasaki ninja 1000 buzzing and vibrating after first oil change.

Hello

yesterday I performed my first 600 miles oil change, I used Kawasaki oil 10w40 non synthetic) and Kawasaki filter. After oil change my bike started buzzing and vibrating in steering wheel and seat. Vibrating is so noticeable that my arms are getting numb after 5 minutes of ridding. Before oil change I rode it for 20 miles and bike was very smooth. Oil level is fine and chain has proper tension. I couldn't find answer on any forum yet. I fallowed brake in period according by manual. Any ideas?

Thanks

You won't really see a topic like that because a properly completed oil change won't do anything, good, or bad, to how a bike rins, or its vibration level. It cant. You put back the same oil that came out (same kind) and it flows through the same oil filter.

The key word is proper. So, what else happened? How much oil did you put back in?

Something else could have failed, but it won't be because of an oil change.

With it vibrating that badly, Iwould get it back to the dealer asap and have them look at it. Do all you can not to mention the oil change you did.

Take it to a different dealer, or whatever it takes.

I put slightly less then 4 quarts of oi, it is just weird that it happened after oil change... Maybe fairings next to oil filter got bent when I was removing oil filter and that makes that buzzing, but it look good to me . I changed oil in my cars and bikes for 8 years, never got any issue.

On a new bike, it would not be unusual to have the header bootleg loosen...

Maybe you bumped them when you were working with the filter?

It's the Molybdenum in the non-syth oil.. just kidding

RC something loose in the exhaust system is a good theory.

Double-check the engine oil level. Low level of oil causes friction and induces heat build-up which can cause vibrations in the engine.

Is the oil filter seated properly?

Finally, did you clean the air filter too? Maybe that isn't set properly?

Since you've checked the chain tension and that is okay, your problem seems centred around the engine oil. I'd just drain the oil once again and replace it with oil bought from a different vendor, of the right grade. You never know, you maybe been sold spurious oil. Change the oil filter too.

And monitor that oil leak, it may just be spillage run-off but it pays to be cautious.
