My front wheel or handlebar shakes at 35-40 when I take my hands off the handlebars.


First, the original steering head bearings are notorious for early failure due to a plastic housing. This is usually the problem. They need replacing with a good aftermarket tapered set with steel casings. Do not use OEM! You can get them at Metric Thunder.com. Second, make sure your front tire isn't cupping, this can be from the bearings,and also from low air pressure. Also,the recommended air pressure is too low. You need to run about 36 psi front, and about 38 rear. Lastly, check out this forum, its specific to your bike, and a wealth of info...

Why does my front wheel shakes at any speed on 06 suzuki c90t?


Tire off-balance? Was either of the tires serviced/replaced prior to this issue surfacing? The back tire could be misaligned to, I would definitely check to make sure both are aligned properly and also are balanced. It could be the suspension too but you would more than likely notice some issues with turns and braking if that was the culprit.

The front tire and the handle bar are not turning together. When I turn left or right the handlebar is all that moves. The front tire is just kind of "there". How do i get the two connected so...


Depending on how old your bike is there is an allen head or a nut at the top of your handlebar that when adjusted properly tightens the stem of the handle bar. You just have to tighten it down. Most use metric allen wrenches or sockets.

My front tire is fairly new, no signs of wear yet. Everything seems tight in the front part of the bike. When I let go of the handlebars with both hands, sometimes (not always), the front forks SHAKE,...


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.

Shaking in handlebars


Your tire is out of balance, your steering head bearings are not tight, and you are running too low of a pressure in your front tire.

Front end vibration


Check if there's any play within the bearings..top and bottom of the triple tree. Put your bike on the center stand and ask someone to sit onthe bike seat and tht way it will raise in the front, try to shake the triple tree into forward and backward motion, if you do find some play thn try to adjust them(bearing)...careful not to keep em tight or else you wont get a good balance on the steering whiles riding!
Check the bushing at the handle bar too!
Hope this helps!

Hi,
A skakey front end can usually be attributed to one of four issues. Wheel bearings, warped rotor(s), bent rim, or bad tire.
To check for bearing wear, put the bike on it's center stand, or a bike jack, and have someone hold the handle bars while you try to move the wheel side to side. If you can feel excess movement, replace the wheel bearings.
Next spin the wheel and watch the rim, tire, and rotors for uneven rotation or wobbling.
Hope this helps
