Husky 610 TE speed wobble
« on: March 25, 2018, 09:49:11 pm »
So I bought a 2009 Husky 610 TE and found that as soon as I hit 104  KM/H & upwards it hits a SERIOUS speed wobble in the front.
Anyone experienced something similar? Causes / suggestions??

TIA

No problems on mine.

Have you checked the normal culprits such a tyre condition, tyre balancing, rim truing, spoke tension, wheel and steering bearings, as well as suspension set up?

Check the rear too!

Try the NUT that holds the handlebars.If all else fails ride slower than 104 km/h

On a more serious note......Yes, check all those items that chopper suggested.

Yes agree - start in this order: wheel balance and true, tyre pressure (try harder), steering head bearings (check for play), suspension (may need more rear pre-load but may be an idea to set it all to standard and work from there for your needs/weight). What tyres are you running?

So did a few things, including fitting a new tyre, re-building the rear shock for my height and dropping the front shocks and wobble sorted. Not sure which was the culprit (probably better to have done one at at a time) or if the combination did it, but thought I'd report back that its sorted. :thumleft:

Most probably the front tyre.

Yes and no - rear suspension, especially preload can affect front (as in fact can a rear tyre). Raise the back and there is less rake and also more force on front wheel often stabalising it.
