Front right shakes when driving at speeds of 65 to 70. car has 183,000 mi now.


RF wheel out of balance probably - maybe lost a balance weight or tire close to failure (seperated belts) - rotate to rear (and rear to front) and see if shake moves with tire (steering stops shaking)....then you'll know...

Shake from left to right at high speeds.


Check for steering head bearing problems. But most likely you have a cruiser that is not supposed to be driven at high speeds and this is normal. Sport bikes use a steering dampner to solve that problem.

Handle bars shake up and down at 50-55mph


Could be a few things I would recomend checking all the head bearings really good, it also could be a busted cord in the front tire. When this happens it usually causes a vibration at higher speeds

07 Buell 12Ss shaking


not just a vibration but more of a shake at 1500 to 1700 rpm. Is this just life with a Buell or should it be checked out?These bikes are known to shake alot at idle. Check if your tires properly balanced.,,
