Question about 1983 Yamaha XS 400 L Maxim
Hello my handle bars shake up and down at 50-55mph as if the wheel is out of balance, the bars sometimes have a small amount of flap at slow speeds. The bike is a 1982 xs400 maxim which I bought at Christmas, it passed its MOT a few weeks ago. The tyres and wheels look ok with not bumps or scuffs and the front wheel was balanced last saturday. The tyres have inner tubes and set to the correct pressure. The headstock feels ok and does not judder on breaking as it would if it were loose (the MOT guy would have picked this up as he is strict). The previous offer didn't use it for about a year. Any ideas what the problem is?
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
