There are a number of reasons this could be happening, including loose bearings in steering head, swingarm, or wheels. But the most common fix is a tire change in the front. Unless removing your hands from the bars while decelerating is important to you I suggest you just live with it. Many, many people have chased the source of this on hundreds of different bikes and never have found it.

Could be a wheel bearing. Jack the car up and shake the tire. Look for a loose front end part.

1999 Ford Taurus, steering wheel shakes when driving due to front passanger side tire movement/problem. The tires have been rotated and still problem from that area. What could it be?

Usually a steering wheel shake is a bad tire. Any chance you have 2 bad tires on the car? Only a front tire will make the steering wheel shake.

Ball bearings fell out of handlebar connection on 3-speed bike.

Take it to a professional bike shop. They have the knowledge and tools to set it right.

Or take a look at this:

The headset nuts were not necessary to be moved for handlebar adjustment. Now the bearing load is too tight. Correct adjustment of the headset requires a delicate balance between tightness and freedom of movement. If your bike has/had the original bearings it's a safe bet they may be due for replacement anyway.

2000 f350 super duty 7.3 drw steering seems to lock up on hard right and left turns. wheel shakes untill i stop and restart. i can sometimes stop the shaking if i quickly turn right and left while driving....

The control valves from the power steering unit lock in position at extreme angles. Either the fluid is dirty - replace it - or the unit is worn out - valves can be replaced separately and the unit refurbished. Or just buy a new unit.

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.

Shuttering steering wheel when turning

he said power steering? wtf?! if it's air in the lines, he messed up, which I highly doubt it is in the first place. See, depending on the method of pushing the pistons back in, he should of bleed the lines when the job was done. I belive, when he "turned" the rotors it wasn't quite centered and now when you're stepping on the breaks, it's causing a "shaking" through your steering system. what's happening is, your break pads aren't in contact with your rotor the whole time while breaking because the rotor wasn't level when it was "turned." so your brakes are gripping half the rotor and not the over half causing the "shaking." And in cause you were wondering, the term "turned" basicaly means shaving off the glossy film on your rotor so that the new brake pads can and will grip your rotor better for improved stopping power. Which should be done everytime when brakes are changed. Now, as of him messing up when turning the rotors, don't be mad. That happens. A fraction of an inch can cause this and is easily fixed. Just be polite and ask him to return the rotors. If he refuses, then start getting rude about it. Redoing the rotors, shouldn't take more then a hour and at no cost to you cause it wasn't done in the first place. Sorry for rambling on.
