Is it the Hondas geometry? Even the OGs that have been wheeling before I was born wobble on their Hondas. What's the deal??
its not just hondas maine every 2 wheel motorcycle will do that ,bikes wernt made to be in that position

Still wobbling...



Could it be my tyre? It's a BT-016. Someone suggested a flatter tyre like a Dunlop quilifier

Slow the speed down??? Lower air pressure??? I sometimes get wobbles in 1st gear but its because Im bringing the front up all crossed up and not being smooth.

Ya, he's right on. Just pop it up high and quick and be easy on the throttle.You know you're at balance point when your rpm's stop rising.
25psi is good for everything.

Don't use the brake on the freeway it is not needed and will just heat up your rotor and pads, then you will have no brake at all.

Freeway wheelies just take lots of practice the wobbles will go away as long as you are smooth. Your body will learn to balance the wheelie and keep it straight.

agree. its not the bike or the tire, its you. there is a spot where all bikes will wobble like that. either be behind it, or infront of it. its normally right behind balance point that you get this. just dip it back further.

but someone mentioned you can only steer if you are behind BP, that is wrong.

I disagree with some of you saying its not the bike. In some cases I think it is.

I've learned over the yrs that Yamaha's tend to "Duck Walk" more so than others... I think it has something to do with the weight distribution differences in some bikes compared to others. I've never tried to break down the physics of it, but having owned and stunted quite a few bikes over the yrs, I have realized some bikes tend to do this more than others...For whatever reason.
