Question about 2004 Honda VTX 1800

1 Answer

2004 Honda VTX 1800 front end tends to loose traction in corners @

Posted by on

  • Peter Malley May 11, 2012

    I have replaced tyres with Dunlop d407 and find when cornering the front end feels like it will give out,especially 2 up.I am thinking that i may need to strengthen rear shock springs to place more load on front end.Tyre pressures are 33/36 as reccomended by Honda.

Hi, Peter and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tires or improper front-rear tire combination.
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing end play.
9. Improperly vehicle alignment.
10. Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires are out-of-round or eccentric with the hub.
13. Rims and tires are out-of-true sideways.
14. Loose spokes.
15. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
16. Worn engine stabilizer links.
17. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
18. Swing arm pivot shaft improperly tightened or assembled.
