Any Wobbles?

Post  Big-G on Thu Mar 06, 2008 11:13 am

I have the Falken 205/60/16 on my C....just about time to replace it (16000 miles).
One of the issues I did come across was the tendancy for the bike to pick-up a wobble if I hammered the throttle hard from about 50 up to about 80 mph. It was a little-bit of an eye opener when it happened -at night-coming home....well thats another story... If I gradually speed up...most of the wobble stays away (but not all).

The Fallken is suspected of being a softer compound, which might explain the wobble. Have any others had any problems with wobble issues due to the CT? Before you say might want to go out on the interstate and open up to full throttle at about 50mpg up to whatever is safe for you..and see.

When my tire was wasn't there and when it did happen it was a complete unexpected shock (pucker moment)!

I have had the wobble but it was in the 95- 110 MPH range. It was only there if i was running solo, I could run 2 up and it never did wobble.
I installed the tire myself and did not balance it at the time, later I installed the balancing beads the wobble went away.

none for me with the Dyna beads... now the tie is spin balanced to as close as they could get it at the shop and I have some vibration over about 95...
