But I mention Aprilia and they run for the hills. Seems like most people only want to work on Hondas and Harley's. Does anyone think that this is a project that I should try myself? Or is there anyone out there that knows of someone that could do a perfect job?I just got through dealing with the same problem. I even got a new wheel and it wasnt' true. The dealer couldn't true it because the wheel is too rigid. I found one of the best businesses I have ever come across during my search to get the wheel fixed. The company is Woody's Wheel Works in Colorado. I shipped them my wheel they trued it the day I got it and shipped it back out the next day. They are a great bunch of guys. The site is www.woodyswheelworks.com. ,,

Front wheels shake going down the road


If you have not hit anything 95 percent of the time it is a tire issue. Can even be a tire issue if you hit something. Broke a belt in the tire. One of the weights came off the rim. I had a garage swear it was a tire rod end once and it did not fix it. Turned out they did not even check the tires. Turned out to be a busted belt and a missing weight. Could have saved myself 800 bucks in labor

What is the procedure for truing a rear wheel on a harley motorcycle


Spoked wheels? Same as any other spoked wheel - or a bicycle, for that matter. Major PITA, BTW. Maybe watch
Oakys Garage Motorcycle Wheel Trueing truing spoke adjustment tighten
If you discover you have a knack for it, you might have a new profession - people who can do it (and want to) are getting thin on the ground.

2 broken front spokes shortly after truing.


Is this a case of fixing something until it's broke?

Not only does a wheel have to be true and round, the individual spokes must be properly and semi-equally tensioned or there will be problems.

I use the Park TM-1 and have had no issues on many sets of wheels since I set them up with it.

Front wheel rubs


What is it rubbing? the fork? Is the wheel true? Are the forks equally extended. Pull the font wheel and have suzuki ck. If it is a spoke wheel then it just might need to be trued through adjustment of the spokes.

My RX 300 pulses the abs every time I hit the brakes, regardless of weather or road conditions.


Sounds like abs sensor is gone on one of the front calibers. If you look at your front breaks youll see the wires that go just behind the calibers make sure none of them are cut or broke

High speed wobble going into corners 2008 Road King


I have a 1999 FLHR that from the first day I picked the bike up had a front wheel wobble. It didn't matter on my speed. It would happen more on a fresh paved road. I run mags on the front an rear so it's not loose spokes, had the neck bushing changed and adjusted. In 2004 a company I buy my tires from started doing laser alignments. I had them do mine instead of buying the stabilizer (to me a bandaid).OMG I can now ride at 50, 70, even 100 without my bike shaking like it's falling apart. My friends could see the bike shaking and the only way to get it to stop then was to release the handlebars and back off on the gas.

I'm in southern CA and Wheel Works are the only people I know that does this laser alignment.I watched them do it so I could understand what was wrong! The bikes are put together in a factory assembly line. They don't measure accurately, they use visual to put the engine in the frame. The wobble is caused by the engine off balance in the frame. It doesn't take much, 1/16" can do it. Wheel Works put the bike up on a lift to lift the whole bike off the ground. They then had it on another lift so they could work on it. There was an adapter put on the front tire and the rear with laser lights to measure. they adjusted it until the engine was dead center and balanced. I haven't had a problem since. I swear by this technique. I ride all the time so it wasn't something I felt once in a while. I've got over 250,000 miles on the bike and it hasn't wobbled since the alignment.
