Make sure the bolts are tight on top and bottom yoke that clamp to the shocks. support the bike securely so the front wheel is off of the ground and have someone hold it. then up and down etc. on the front wheel and feel, look for some loose joint. spin the wheel to see if there is any bearing noise. make sure chain is lubed and adjusted properly as it could set up a vibration.

Front end vibration when going over bumps, almost like bad shocks. But I just put on new shocks 2 days ago. The truck doesn't bounce more than normal, but when going over small bumps at 5-25 mph. Going...


this may have something to do with worn suspension and steering joints. If the mechanic didn't tell you about the condition of the front end when he did the shock absorbers then be a little sus when you go back.

How do you raise the handle bars on the bike?


If it is an older bike, you loosen the bolt at the top of the handle bar shaft until it is about 1/2 inch raised. Take a hammer and give it a swift bump and it should drop into the shaft. Hold the front tire between your legs and the handle bar should raise up. Re tighten once every thing is lined up. If the bike has front hand breakes these may need to be adjusted.

Front end vibration


check you springs you may have a broken spring also jack the wheel up one at a time and check the bearing hands 9 and 3 pull side to side and then up and down at 12 to 6 any excessive movement and the bearing needs changing. do this to both wheels. also check the anti roll bar rubbers all 4 of them check for splits or wear this can also make a clunking sound on bumps of any size. failing all these you may need to have your disc's checked as they may have become warped can happen if you use them alot ie hills, sudden stopping

When bumping up stairs handle bar extends, and feels loose (handle bar is very wobbley)


The Bugaboo is not the ideal stroller for bumping up and down stairs, The reason being it's core design. Most stroller handles have two or more mounting points to the frame but most strollers have baby facing forward and facing the big bad world and not Mummy. The Bugaboo is very clever, the handle can be locked ether way and the seat face either way but the handle has only one point where it attaches to the frame and that point has to rotate and lock. To give you an idea of the forces involved a crow bar the length of the Bugaboo handle can pull six inch nails out of hard wood!
Unfortunately Bugaboo have not used the best material solutions in this critical handle lock. They use a plastic disk to move aluminum locking pins and they fail if you bump down to many stairs. This happened to our Bugaboo in New Zealand. I repaired ours and now I help others by making or sourcing the better quality parts to repair them. I use aluminum for the disk and stainless steel for the pins.
If you are lucky another to have a Bugaboo less then two years old and still have proof of purchase documents Bugaboo will replace the frame for you. If it's older you can buy a new frame for around $400 but this will also increase you resale value by around $200 when you sell it. Lastly you can repair it for around $100 a side depending on parts required, Click on my name and you'll find many posts on how to repair both the Handle lock and the Handle extension lever or wing-nut. macnutz_23.jpg

What is the purpose of the friction knob switch on a motorcycle?


If it located above the steering neck on the handle bars in the center , it is just a steering damper. It slows down the twisting of the handle bars if you hit a pothole or a bump while turning.

Vibration on Handlebars and footrests any idea? Honda CB1300 motorcycle 2006


Is it carburerated? (sp) if so, sync the carbs. Some larger inline four engines are prone to vibrating. Check all engine mount bolts. If you can not locate a problem, I would reccomend a bar snake for the handle bars to at least isolate the vibration from your hands.

To much vibration handle bars/ furring


First I would check the brackets that hold the fairing on the bike. These brackets are known to break! ( Mine 2004 Glide 4 times ) .This is a major cause of vibration on the front of bikes like ours. If this is not the case I would check ballance of the front tire

Handle bars shake up and down at 50-55mph


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
