Question about 2004 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre
I recently bought used (4000 mi) bike and having real issue with rear wheel sliding to the right both on straight line braking and when acceleratingout of turns. I replaced Dunlop with Metzler but still having problem. Any advise will be greatly appreciated as I recently dumped the damn thing going around 15 MPH - I hit the back brake and rear end came around so far to the right that bike ended up 90 degrees to direction of travel. Could it be a problem with shock ? Dealer can't help - wants $100 to determine if wheels are in line with one another. Thanks, Rob
Hi ...... Def'ly sounds like a traction problem. Elevate the rear wheel off the ground using a centre-stand or axle stands. Grip the wheel at 12 o'clock & 6 o'clock then 9 o'clock & 3 o'clock, wiggle & pull (gently) in both positions, if you feel any movement it points towards wheel bearings. Check to see if there are any oil leaks, oil breather hose or battery breather hose which exit over the rear wheel. Is the shock leaking onto the wheel ? Is it a drum or disc brake ?
