    very nice mate, thanx, you did relieve my stress of somthing very bad happening to my baby ;)
    it it time to change the tyre, so hope will be ok.
    anyway, aswell it worries me the braking, even in very small speed, when stoping, if i do so just whith the front brakes, it shakes, like into bumps, was like that since i bought it, so the tyre was good. can be the brakes blended aswell? do you know if that happened normally to the sport bikes? or more, to the R6s?

Could be a break sticking, or tires worn or out of balance or even a small bulge in one of the tires.

    my guess is your tire is out of balance or even out of round on the rim. i have done my share of riding weelies and when the front end comes down hard, after time and time again it will throw off the balance of the tire and that will cause a bikes handle bars to shake and wobble. it will also blow out the fork seals and cause them to leak oil.

    get your front wheel off the ground enough to where you can spin the wheel by hand freely. while spinning the wheel as fast as you can, put your other hand against the disc break and feel for small warping of the disc. do it to both of the disc's. inside and out. hopefully they will be smooth. if they are, then just replace the pads and that should solve that problem. the way i have described to do this is just a back yard mechanics way. its much less expensive than taking it to a shop. hope this helps you... if none of these things work, you may have a bent fork.

I need to replace the brushes. Don't know how the old one's are removed.

The carbonbrushes if they are short and you will replace them there is a long brown wire on one of the 2 brushes thats goes inside the handgrip but be careful there are 2 plastic pieces for the power licht and the carbon brush is on a electronic modul inside the handgrip by a sliding contact 90 degrees beware also on the black damping rings inbetween the machine and handgrip 4 pieces to protect vibrations . if you have open the handgrip i will say that you allways control the bearing at the end of the armature because its a very to small choosen bearing that is oft in bad condition i mean it , if it has its operating hours if the carbon brushes are short.but the handgrip must be opened for remove the brushes.

Nikon collpix l810 lens shake automatically

The Nikon Coolpix L810 is a great camera capable of taking very good and sharp pictures, even in bad light conditions. It has a Vibration reduction, that makes it even possible to shoot pictures without tripod when you zoom in very far. If normally with the same lens length you should need 1/200 of a second your camera should still be capable of taking that picture with only the same blur from shake, with 1/50 of a second. But if you ever should use a tripod. make sure you switch off that feature. Because the Vibration reduction, works with a staking lens element. that should compensate the movement of the camera, by shaking in the correct direction opposite to the movement of the camera. The element will still shake and so blur a picture, when the camera is placed on a tripod.
Don't try to shoot pictures with the zoom on full extension, in bad light conditions. That also won't work. Lots of things can be done with the camera, but to everything is a limit. Most of the time that limit comes sooner when there is less light.

Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.
