It could be loose steering head bearings or some other component improperly reassembled. You should check all these things.

The one thing that is certain is that your bike should NOT be doing this and is unsafe until you figure it out.

Is prercision motorcycles the one on westhiemer and Hwy 6 if so the same thing happened when I got a shinko from there had no choice but to get a tire closes possible place and it was there. Went out that night to starbucks and ride the loop got to about ****mph and back end started shaking bad had to slow down. Went back the next day and they re balanced it again but noticed there machine cut into my rim and screwed it up. Never go there again either. Ask them to clean my chain as well did not care if they charged me and they only cleaned the half the chain. Never let them wash your bike either they will swirl your paint with the way they wash it.

Well my bike didn't shake before and the big nasty gash in the side of my rim was not there when I brought there and my paint was not swirled before they washed it but it all happened after I got it back so maybe it was one of those days there but I got horrible service and a messed up bike back and all the guy could say was sorry no offer to fix it or anything what ever I got three words for that place.

Great advice. Don't worry about your bike shaking viloently. Just slow down.

Just take the bike to a reputable person. I know it sounds like a broken record, but seriously, just take it to Motorcycles Unlimited and have them figure it out. Somethings are worth spending the money on, and I would consider your situation one of them.

Once you find out what the problem is, then you will know if the person you used was at fault and you can adress it with them then.

This is not something to play around with. My 2 cent.

You might want to check your steering stem. It might be lose. Or if you have a chance take to tejas motorsports torward baytown. I know a few riders that gotten their tires there with no problems.

You probably got a bad tire or two. My buddy had the same problem. We took them off and remounted them and then rebalanced them. We ended up taking them back and they had a problem in one of them. It's pretty dangerous to ride around with them like that. It's not the shops fault, it happens.

If you go back to when the problem started it was when you installed the new tire.
IMO it's probably a bad tire. The Shinkos aren't exactly the best manufacturer quality wise as it is.

never overcomplicate things...

if the problem happened w the installation of a new tire, start there; or anything else they would have touched in the process... wheel alignment will effect pitch of the bike in a straight line not vibrations at speeds. A warped rotor will usually be felt only when braking since its on a floating caliper that will move and open as you ride faster. If it were a bent wheel it would get worse as you increase w speed(harmonically.)

I'm kinda curious as to why he says his 180 tire will slip out from under him and the 190 won't. Has anyone here taken a high school physics class? Friction has nothing to do with contact area. F=Motorcycles Unlimited u=materials friction coefficient. Another prime example is: How do you think a turbo busa can lay down 400+ hp on a 190 tire?
