Wiggle Wobble

Post  drnoleak on Mon Feb 10, 2014 12:50 pm

Victory Vision with 2000 miles on a Bridgestone Protenza 195/55-16 Run Flat. Running 32 PSI.

What do I need to do to get the wobble, wiggle, tracking to go away? Seems like the bike in always jumping around and having to constantly adjust.

Love the way the bike corners.

Comments, Ideas?

Thanks

make sure steering head bearing is snug, no play in shock bushings, etc. the Darkside has been known to amplify deficiencies in the bikes movements in suspension and steering

Try going up in air pressure, jump up to 40lbs/44lbs and see if it goes away. If it goes away then let air out 1 or 2 lbs at a time till the wobble comes back. Then go up 2 lbs and call it good.

Just want to re-iterate that what I am feeling is the back tire moving around on the concrete grooved highways. Causes constant minor steering adjustment.

OK, that is caused by the tread design. Some tires just follow the grooves better than others and some just roll over the grooves. On blacktop the bike runs true?

Yes, it runs true. I can put it on cruise control and take my hands off the bars and no problem.

I had a front tire that cause a wobble and I thought it was coming from the rear, try more or less air in the front tire to see if the wobble gets better/worse or stays the same.
