Question about 2005 MBK Skyliner 125

1 Answer

SCOOTER WOBBLE My Eagle-Wing 125 Scooter,(much the same as a Jordan), has picked up a shake/wobble when driving normal speeds, 10-60 kph. It does NOT get worse when Brakeing. Has it got anything to do with tyre wear? The back tyre seems to be wearing uneavenly, more on the right side. I've got 5000 Km on the clock. How long are scooter tyres supposed to last? Thanks, Andre

Most wobbles are due to tire balance issues. If you have one side of the tire worn more than the other, this will cause an imbalance in the tire. If it is still in decent shape, you may be able to find a shop that can balance it. If it is more than 1/2 worn out, replace it for safety sake.

How do I correct a vary bad wobble in the tiller of a shop rider cobra scooter ?


Dear Charles,
I am so glad you asked.
You are just about to lose all steering on your scooter.
There are one or more screws that hold the steering assembly together and in place.
One of more of these screws has come loose or maybe is lost, and is just about to let go all together.
Please have someone look at it and see if it can be tightened or if a part or parts have failed and must be replaced.
God bless your efforts.

Hello,

As long as the tire is weighted (balanced) properly and you are not a getting high-speed wobble, your mechanic is right. There are, however, other things that would cause your bike to wobble; tire type, road conditions, ribbed / grooved roads and slow speeds.

If you are concerned about your safety, I would recommend that you "test" your bike in different locations. Empty parking lots are a good place to start.
