So now after having done about 800km since the rebuild the problem is not going away ie: serious/extreme handle bar shake.  This was not a problem prior to the build.  Initially i thought maybe new knobbles were needing to wear in - thats why the 800km comment. How much mileage is required before tyres are worn in? Is it possible the new fork seals and replacing the oil could affect this or maybe the re-greasing the head set - maybe it was stiff before and now has been loosened up through the rebuild?  Anyway the problem seems extreme to me. I shit myself over every bump and hang on for dear life over about 90km/h.  I used to say my arms were my steering damper but that theory is now fokked.  I need help - maybe a visit to someone who can sort this out semi locally (ie: Dom G/town or PE). The only other option is to send the whole bike to superfoxi or someone of similar abilities to try and fix. :-\ :dontknow:

Looks fantastic! ;)

Well done! :thumleft:

They remain fantastic bikes! Would love that motor in a KTM 500 frame! :o

You can turn the rear wheal shaft/spindle around, ie. nut on the right, then the locking tab will be on top of the swing arm. ;)

Can your hand guards be dropped slightly, so the metal is on the same height as the lever? Will provide better protection. ;)

Thanks will do. :thumleft:

Have you tried having the wheel balanced?

What tires have you got on? I would check the wheels are true and there is no play in the wheel bearings. Check the steering head bearings are loaded (tightened sufficiently) - that when the front wheel is raised on a stand there is no play when the wheel is grabbed and moved side to side and back and forth. Front headshake can also be caused by rear wheel or suspension. Check over the rear as well. Does the headshake become less if you move your weight front or back on seat?

Also check for excessive wear in the front fork tubes. ;)

Front handling issues sometimes originate from the rear suspension. :o

Try pulling your forks up 5mm or so, they are very low in the triples

Yes forks should be at the first or second line.  :thumleft:

Normally that's correct but there are exceptions

I think dropping them may help - often increasing rear pre-load reduces a front end weave which is similar to dropping the forks (transfers weight forward). That is why I suggest moving weight forward and back while riding - iofetne gives one an indication of this setup. But that said if the headshake really is that extreme I doubt dropping them 5mm would help much, but lets see.

Cool thanks okes will check some of these issues on the weekend.  @dom, i did try a bit of back and forth on the seat and I can't say I noticed much difference, but I will focus on that and try again.  A bit of R&D on the weekend.

The 610 is a pretty stable bike, even with aggressive tires fitted, so there must be something wrong.

Agree - really has a good balance and very forgiving.

The tires are E12 and E13.

Also check for excessive wear in the front fork tubes. ;)
  I don't think this is a problem as the forks were redone with new fork seals etc... but if at some point there is no improvement with other tweaks then maybe they will have to go off to superfoxi.

I agree it was very stable and was never a problem.  What must be done to the rear do you think - tire pressures?

Have you set the static and race sag on the rear?

I know it's not common to have this done on dirtbikes, but it made a massive difference on my 450 that had the same issue. Especially at higher speeds on tar, as those tires are not made for high speed tar...

Part of the plan to try and identify problem.

How tight should the headset on the fork/triple clamp be.  I noticed that mine has no lateral movement in the bearing, but is pretty loose when turned.  I tightened it up only an 1/8th of a turn and then it was looseish but then it was sitting in a ridge of sorts - ie: like there was a groove of sorts that held it in the straight line position and was difficult to turn out of.  Possibly need to replace these bearings?
