Any wobble in wheels has to do with balancing issues. Have your wheel balanced.

Front end wobbles


If it wobbles at low speed it is usually a bad tire or bent rim. If it is at higher speeds it is almost always wheel balance.

2005 Vulcan 1600 Classic; having problems with the steering lock. It won't lock/unlock at times. Flooded with WD40, but still does it. Any help? Also ever since new has a steering wobble when decelerating...


When you go to lock it or unlock the steering give the bars a little wiggle while turning the key. Somtime the rod that goes into the hole gets gummed up. As for the front end wobble I would take a look at the wheel to see if it has gotten bent or if you have lost a wheel weight. Also check the wheel bearings buy getting the front wheel off the ground and hold the front end from moving and grab the top and bottom of the wheel and see if there is any side to side rocking movment. If there is stop riding the bike and get them replaced.

I have front end wobble on my motorcyle.The wheel has been balanced a couple of times.I have had a new tyre fitted.No problems with head bearings etc.Still I have the problem around 40.Can you help please?


Hello geoff100lee.... many of the "C's" have a small wobble in the steering at certain speeds...most notable while decelerating... Two considerations that control a front end shimmy are the tightness of the steering head bearing and steering dampers.
Since most bikes don't have steering dampers it's EXTREMELY important that the head bearing is properly adjusted. Your dealer is most likely aware of this problem on the "C", even if he won't admit to it.
There is a fix for it using tapered needle bearings. The bearings are about 40 buxs, but requires pressing and a few special tools to install. If you search VTXcafe.com or VTXOA.com forums you can find instructions.
Good luck...i hope this helps. please rate me a fixya.

Front end wobble


An easily overlooked problem that can have these symptoms is low tire pressure. Examine your tire for excessive wear or a flat spot. Check your tire pressures. If all this seems fine, rotate your tires to see if that helps the problem. If so, replace the suspect tire.

Steering wobble at 65km decelerating


No this is not normal. I had to go through 2 different times having a tire balanced once to get a wobble out.
