Title: DR650 tire presure
Post by: bikoholic on September 10, 2013, 09:06:53 am
Hoe hard moet ek my bande pomp? Ek kry "speed wobbles" sodra ek hier by 130km/h kom.
Wil net seker maak my band druk is reg.

Check your head bearings.

The tire presure was fine. I put the bike on a centre stand with the front wheel of the ground, the bars will fall to the left or right. Is surpose to move slowly from side to side? Do i need to tighten them up a bit?

Check if there is a notch in the centre.
Check if the bearings have play (push fork boots up, grab inner fork tubes just above the top of the outer tube).
Steering must turn by itself. If it does not turn by its own weight and if it's not poorly routed cables preventing it from turning it's too tight.

Thanks, its sorted. No more wobbles. Those neck bearings was way to lose.
Was doing 150 this morning on the way to work and now I love my bike.
