I have noticed a front end shake in the handle bars. It shows up at high speeds, over 80, and lows around 15. Is there a fix to this?
Check/adjust the steering head bearing. You can do it yourself with a proper service manual for instructions, or you can fix it using one of the handy tools below.I have noticed a front end shake in the handle bars. It shows up at high speeds, over 80, and lows around 15. Is there a fix to this?
Thanks Schu, I downloaded that service manual so I can reference it if I'm on the road and don't have the actual manual with me. JeversThis should open to the correct page for the steering head check/adjustment procedures.
Is there really a noticeable improvement over the OEM bearings?
Experienced some fairly heavy head shake on my ride down from Independence Pass into Aspen this weekend.There may be an occasion when the tires have developed a bit of siping or cupping and this will contribute to a bit of "wobble".
There are many threads on other motorcycle forums in regard to front-end wobble. Much of that is tire related.
