Wobble getting worse, any new ideas?
As my OEM tyres wore out I noticed the front end wobble a number of us have. I put Avon's on and the wobble was reduced but still there. They have about 6000 km on the now and the wobble is there as soon as you loosen your grip on the handlebars, but what is more concerning is that it is now coming in on slow speeds and or acceleration as well. The bike handles like a bag of shit at the moment particularly on down hill twisties changing to a heavier grade fork oil helped but handling still leaves a lot to be desired.
I have had the fork oil replaced and gone to a Heavier grade. The wheels have been off and rebalanced a few times trying to get the beast to handle better and get rid of the wobble. Whilst the dealer hasn't pulled the stem bearings out, he and his mechanics are satisfied there is no problem with them and the front forks move smoothly and return to center.
The bike has never been dropped and apart from non OEM tyres there is nothing we can think of that is causing the wobble and handling issues. I have been considering the Dunlop cruiser tyres or maybe just going back to OEM's.
Has anyone else had any success in getting rid of the wobble or improving handling?
