Front end wobble

Good morning to all, I was on a road trip this weekend and it was around 104-106 degrees out,I was going about 45mph through a curve on some real new looking black top, my front end started a bad wobble and I thought I had a flat front tire. I pulled over and checked, but it was ok. I checked all of the front end bolts to make sure that they were still torqued, and all seems tight. Should I be worried, or was it just the hot road? The tire has real good tread, and the size is 90/90-21 m/c 54 H ME 880 marathon. thanks for your input

New blacktop will often give you a squirmy feeling especially in heat and on curves.

Bike has recently started to wobble at speeds around 70mph. Any ideas what it may be.


You need to check your front wheel bearing you will get a wobble from a collapsed wheel bearing,I've had it happen to me on my fireblade and since then I replace my bearings every spring when I'm about to get back on the road after winter,just see if your front wheel moves side to side even if there is slight play.
Hope this helps.

Rattling struts on Honda Civic


Other damage is not likely right IF you are not getting a front end woble. Many people drive around with worn shocks or struts everyday. The key is to know when it is too long. The idea and design of these dampners is to not absorb bumps but to return the wheel to the road in a quick manner. If they are worn out then the wheel does not return all that quickly and can allow the wheel to bounce like a basketball. If it is not bouncing, take your trip and get it done this weekend.

Front end wobble


First thing to do is check front and rear tyre pressures. Next check for un-even wear of front tyre. Then check steering head bearings for correct tightness. Also check for bent front brake disks as one side bent can cause this. Check for worn wheel bearings also. Check engine mount rubbers as these can cause floating on bends if worn of loose. Basically check all chassis related items fully.
