Back to tire Death wobble

new to darkside just have some info on tires if you have the ultra or a bike with all the baggage the front tire needs to be a little stickie compound the dunlop that comes from the factory is a hard compound tire which makes it a little goosie dependind on surface temp suggestion is to do some research on the tires for a softer road transitio tire it's hard to manage since the front tire is changed the least but it helps in the death wobble of the heaver bikes after 40 years you want everything to stick and give up a little milage.

Welcome
Welcome to the Forum Digger,
Punctuation would make reading what you are saying a lot easier to understand.
I think front spring preload will also play a role in stability.

Re-visiting this thread I just realized I missed something: the CT's are a much SOFTER compound than MT's, so the original statement would be incorrect. Including Dunlops - my bud has a Dunlop Signature CT on his VTX and it's softer than my Vredestein was, or Austone is.

Kabby,
My friends Venture doesn't wobble with the Kuhmo and Dyna Beads. If you are certain the tire is installed properly and balanced I would say try adding more air pressure. Although I've never seen it first hand I've heard a worn front tire can affect the performance of the rear also.

Today i put 50 lbs in the rear and it handled mush better, had very little wobble at 75 to 80 and came right out of it. seams 73 is the number for a tiny bit of wobble. Going to keep it like this and hook trl to bike and test ride it in the am.

Wow! 50 PSI sounds like quite a bit. What tire are you running? Usually run 32 in a runflat and 36-40 in a non runflat.
If 50 works, great, but you'll probably notice the center will wear before the outside tread does.
