Absolutely perfect advice.Here's the tightening spec for the lower nut:
32.5 lbs-ft, turn the steering stem 5 or 6 times to ensure the bearings are seated, then loosed the nut 1/4 to 1/2 turn this will vary from motorcycle to motorcycle sez Suzuki.
Because, "the tension differs from bike to bike". Do you remember the rider who recently posted that his brand new bike, with brand new Trailwings, wobbled?That doesn't explain why I got a wobble with two different Continental Road Attack front tires and only with those tires. A stock Trail Wing, a Dunlop 607 and two Michelin Pilot Roads never wobbled. The first Conti RA went on after the 607 and it wobbled badly. The 607 went back on and it was fine. The second RA wobbled but not as badly as the first. Only the two RAs wobbled. No other tire did at any state of wear. Metzeler Tourances and Conti Trail as well as Road Attacks are also often reported to wobble.
Would you be interested in settling this by arm wrestling each other?What I'm saying is both are involved. Sure you can make any tire wobble by mal-adjusting the steering head bearing. Nothing I did could stop the Conti RA I had from wobbling. It isn't only the steering head bearing.
Nope.Put a Conti RA or TA on the front of your bike and get back to me.
I'm sure he emailed the repairman the schematics of the fridge first, having circled the offending part!! :green_lol:I'm disillusioned, Pat. Somebody else repairs your refrigerator? :jawdrop:
Rich, I understand your comments and the validity that they have.Guys, decel wobble is complicated. Lots of things bear on it.
