could be forks, bend in rim , tire pressure and like everyone else been sayin slow the **** down a bit, if it wobbles and you hit 130 chances of coming out your bike falling to peices at those speeds wont be good

so if he takes it to the texas mile to top out his bike did your response help him at all?

like i said get a stabilizer, check proper tire pressure, check your forks.

even with a stabilizer you'll get some head shake on ****ed up roads.

Anyways does anyone know why this happened.

Pay Attention:

Not at the track. Not on a closed course. So, No. Not Sorry. No help at all. Glad he didn't fall and this isn't another RIP thread!

Has the suspension been set up? Bike ever been wrecked? Rider induced headshake?

I would wager suspension, then rider...

And a stabilizer won't cure an ill handling bike, just covers it up till it is beyond saving.

Check your Flux Capacitor. When the fluid gets low, it can cause some weird gyroscopic effects for sure. Yuo may also check the muffler bearings. At high RPM's, they can stir quite a buzz in the chasis.

Also, if one of the blinker is out of fluid and the other full, it can throw off the balance of the bike...be careful, that could cause a tank slapper.

Oh, and rotate the air in your tires.

I would try to bump it up to 156mph and see if the wobbling stops....seriously, tank slappers at 135 mph hurt

all of you azzholes are wrong! his buttcheeks are not gripping the rear part of the seat properly. chances are, no one at the dealership mentioned riding style or speed techniques. you gotta clamp harder the faster you go. think squeezing an egg into the size of a pebble.

don't even get me started on if you have a proper balance of chrome/carbon fiber or even just your sticker weight that could be throwing the balance way off. this happens at 135. wait til you hit 170 and see! you better find a "buns of steel" video quick, or borrow mine. I can turn a chunk of coal into a diamond in 12 seconds flat. and I'm the fastest guy here, including buck beasley.

that is all.

TZ,

What's the process you use for removing the seat padding.. (and in fact the seat) after you've reached maximum clench?

Me thinks this is what caused Tony (HOP's) most recent track crash. He put one of those Toms Paint stickers he was hocking on the left side and forgot about the right side. Balance was WAY off.





I keed Tony, I keed

Kick it up 10-15 and see if that smooths things out. Chances are, you'll be okay.

..on a serious note...

The bike needs to be cheked out by a profesional...
They can check it out maybe work on it... but, do you think
our new 'friend' here is going to wait until he can take it to
the track, or is just going to wait until he gets onto a piece
of asphalt/concrete somewhere to rap it out and 'test' it.
