Bad Vibration felt in Seats @ 25 mph

Hi all,

New to this forum. Just purchased a 2013 Commander xt and have 8.5 hrs on it. On the last trip while driving gravel roads, a bad vibration at about 25 mph. I took the machine to a dealer and he agreed upon road testing it that there was quite a vibration. When I picked up the machine after the 10 hr sevice, he claimed they could not find anything causing this vibration and to just drive it until something shows up. Would anyone know what may be causing this vibration? It seems worse on the passengers side.

Does it get worse with speed or RPM?? Do you feel it in the steering wheel or in the seat of your pants?

Check the front breaks, front axels, front cvs. If you have access to a car lift get it up on the lift and run it with the wheels off the ground and see where it's coming from. It's not normal

Have someone follow you on a road and look to see if something is obvious that way.

Like he said, not normal, nor is it acceptable for the dealer to check out on the problem, basically they said ride it till it breaks!!??

Ask them if they placed a TECH CALL to BRP?

Jbee, it is in the seats, mostly the passengers seat, and seems worse at 25 mph. Prconnection's suggestion of checking the brakes is interesting. Just before this vibrations started, there was a rubbing/grateing noise in the front which sounded like the brakes. I ran it in reverse and applied the brakes and the noise went away. This was a few miles prior to the vibration starting. I will check the brakes tonight.
Thanks very much to all that responded. I will advise later of what I find.

In the seat vibration is usually wheel/tire suspension, or brakes....I would start there

Have you had the seats out ? I'm sure you have. Each seat has 2 rubber bushings. Make sure both are in place. They attach to the bottom of the seat bracket. I lost one, had to use a shock rubber bushing in its place. Cheap fix, solved my problem.

Check for broken wheel studs. I found this when replacing a front axle. Has been like this a while and I believe is the culprit to a shake in that front side. Note the back side of 2 of the studs are snapped off.
