Question about 2003 Yamaha Road Star Silverado
Only shimmys when you let go of the handle bars. but it does not always do it imediately. no problem if you keep at least on hand on handle bars. this bike has had this problem since it was new. 43,000 miles on bike. thanks roadstat2002
Front wheel needs balance,and also the rear wheel may need to be centered. If someone replaced the brakes or tires and the rear wheel is off center to the front that will cause the shimmy.

I had this problem with my 01 and my 07 all I needed to do was change the tires. We looked at everything else that it could be and once I changed them we saw the problem. They were cupped really bad. Only shimmied at about 40mph if I let go of the bars.
