Bike is all stock except its missing the bar ends, it has a aftermaket set on it that are real light i no the stock bar ends had some weight to them would that cause it to shake? This is what it does if i take my grip off the bars at a low speed it starts to shake but as soon as i put any kind of pressure back on the bars it goes right away any ideas?
Thinking like anna14 if you have good tire pressure,good steereng bearings, good balance tire, you need to control the tingtening torke of the steering,suzuki said when you adjust it and you feel close make an 1/4 of circunference more, other thing to control was the oil size in both sides, and if your fork have regulations make sure are the same in both, the weigth is no problen because rece fork are more ligth and no have that sintoms, if you desarm the fork make sure that the spring are good and same armed in both arms of it, and the las solution put an fork dumper and finish.ciao amigo

First, the original steering head bearings are notorious for early failure due to a plastic housing. This is usually the problem. They need replacing with a good aftermarket tapered set with steel casings. Do not use OEM! You can get them at Metric Thunder.com. Second, make sure your front tire isn't cupping, this can be from the bearings,and also from low air pressure. Also,the recommended air pressure is too low. You need to run about 36 psi front, and about 38 rear. Lastly, check out this forum, its specific to your bike, and a wealth of info...
There are a number of reasons this could be happening, including loose bearings in steering head, swingarm, or wheels. But the most common fix is a tire change in the front. Unless removing your hands from the bars while decelerating is important to you I suggest you just live with it. Many, many people have chased the source of this on hundreds of different bikes and never have found it.
hello and welcome
a couple of things that need to be inspected. the steering head bearings. with the bike supported you can check for free play with the steering stem and its holdings.
another is the rear tire. seems funny but vibrations and handleing i have seen do transfer from the rear at times. and if the tire may be out of balance it can throw the front tire wear off as well.
and another of course is the fork freeplay. as you r the dealerships should have inspected is the fork bushings. they have a teflon coating and if they wear down they can develop a clearance that results in bad front end handleing and tire wear. between any of those items you should be able to find the culprit. thank you.
