SOURCE: Violent shake while cornering at lower speeds

hello and welcome
a couple of things that need to be inspected. the steering head bearings. with the bike supported you can check for free play with the steering stem and its holdings.
another is the rear tire. seems funny but vibrations and handleing i have seen do transfer from the rear at times. and if the tire may be out of balance it can throw the front tire wear off as well.
and another of course is the fork freeplay. as you r the dealerships should have inspected is the fork bushings. they have a teflon coating and if they wear down they can develop a clearance that results in bad front end handleing and tire wear. between any of those items you should be able to find the culprit. thank you.

SOURCE: I have a 1982 V45 HONDA SABRE VF750S motorcycle.

I had the same problem with mine last year. I put a new tire on it and had it balanced. The vibration went away. I would at least have your tire balanced.

SOURCE: Front end wobble/shake when at low speed or in a corner.

Hi,
There can be a few issues going on that will cause this.
(1) Bad wheel bearings
(2) Warped rotors
(3) Bent front rim

First thing to do is get the bike up on the center stand, or bike jack so the front end is off the ground. You may need someone to push down on the rear to get the front tire off the ground.
Grab the tire and try to move it side to side. If you feel movement, then you will need to have the bearings replaced.
Next rotate the tire and watch for wobble in either the wheel, or the rotors. The shop that replaced the tire should have noted a rim problem when they balanced the tire if that was the issue.
Warped rotors will give a very pronounced wobble at low speeds, and more of a vibration at higher speeds, and it will be most noticeable when braking.
If you have run into anything with any force lately, you may have a bent front axle. I'm assuming that is not the issue.
...word of advice...find a good bike mechanic. Most auto mechs have no clue when it comes these Goldwings.
Hope this helps...Ride Safe...Have Fun

SOURCE: My front tire is fairly new, no signs of wear yet.

I would also check that the front yoke is adjusted correctly and that the back swing arm is not loose.

I have a Mitsubishi Mirage de, and from around 30 mph until 45 mph, the front end shakes so bad that it makes the Intire car shake bad. Any suggestions?


Some one didn't do a very good alignment. If it was done recently, you may won't to take it back. Unless you been hitting some major pot holes. Vibration that comes and goes like that is usually tire balance. Might want to have the suspension checked. But they should have done that before the alignment. You can't align a vehicle if it has bad tie rods, ball joints or struts.

Front end shake at a specific speed means the wheels are out of balance or alignment. Have this checked at a garage.

Check the condition of your tires and suspension. this problem is usually caused by bad component or alignment. Special attention is given to camber and caster.

Driveing 55 mph if i hit a bump in the road the front ead goes to shakeing so bad and hard you cant keep it on the road and wont stop tell you get below 5 mph it shakes so bad it broke the driver side...


What you have going on there is commonly called "death wobble". It's not as bad as it seems.
Most often it's caused by either worn ball joints or track bar ends or mounts. It can also be caused by items such as tires that aren't terribly worn but worn enough so that they don't have enough weight to remain steady when they flex, improperly torqued wheels or cumulative wear in several of the front end components that add up to excessive play. Item most often blamed incorrectly is the stabilizer (sideways shock on suspension) That can fail after excessive repeated shaking but is never the cause of that. Make sure that the steering box is solidly attached to the frame and in extreme cases, have an alignment shop add a couple of degrees of extra caster to the alignment specifications.

98 mazda millenia shaking front end at 40 mph?? any clues??


try the simple solution first put your front tires on back and back tires on front. check your air pressure then take it for a drive and see if any thing has changed. if so you probably have a badly worn tire. if no change have someone move the steering wheel back and forth wyle you are under the fornt of the car (dont forget to chalk the wheels) and see if any of your steering components are loose/moving. if nothing is loose and your tires are good try to bounce the front end. if you can really get the front of the car going up and down pretty easy you havce bad struts/shocks.
