Title: Husky 610 weave nearing 170km/h
Post by: sidetrack on January 19, 2014, 01:44:16 pm
Hi Guys

I have a scary problem, when I do around 160 km/h plus the front end becomes very unstable. The best is to explain it as a tankslapper feeling. The tyres are around 2 bar but not balanced, I run no rim locks and the front forks are dropped the standard 5mm or so in the clamps. This has happened with various front tyres. Would like to see what the bike can really do as I have some revs left but that wobbly makes me skeered  :biggrin:

Wasn't it caused by moving out of my CRF's slip steam @ 160?
As I tapped down, I saw you coming past looking like a snake  :imaposer:

Seeing as your Mitas is at its end, trying a new back tire might help:

I would not lift the forks in the clamps to "stabilize" the bike, seeing as it already has a very long wheelbase

Could be the T63 pressure likes Zacapa says. It's plenty stable at 120 so it's not a problem for riding pretty much anywhere.

Most likely your rear tyre - I had the same with a Rally Raid - changed to a Mitas CO2 and was gone. You could also try different pressures - I would go up on 2 bar. There really are so many things that can cause this - from steering head bearings to wing mirrors! Really needs an elimination process.

Methinks it's the vibration from the turbo ;D
