front wheel wobble at 30-40mph
My bike has a definite front wheel wobble at 30-40, especially 35mph, if I'm not holding onto the bars with my standard grip. I can certainly feel it when I have strong control of the bars.
It's really pronounced if I run with only one hand and a very light touch on the grip. If I let it continue, eventually it would worsen to the point of causing a crash.
So, I'm in the dealership today, setting an appt to have that looked at, along with some other issues and the mechanic told me that ALL bikes do that. He said that the wheels are unstable at such low speeds and that all bikes have that wobble at ~35 mph. Why don't they wobble at even lower speeds?
Well, color me stupid, but I've had a number of bikes, back in the 60's and 70's, the last being a Honda 750. I don't recall having a single one of them do that, ever, if there wasn't something broken.
Now, that's over 30 years ago, so I've missed a lot of biking in the years hence. So what's the deal? Do you guys have this front wheel wobble too or is this guy trying to give me a snow job?
