    Does your bike have spoked rims? If so, some or all of the spokes could be loose which will make it pull...also, check the rim to see if it is trued...

Is this BMW new to you? Ever ride a Beemer before?

BMW's tend to feel like they are pulling to the left because to the way the engine is set in the motorcycle.

At least the two I have ridden did that and I was infored by the owners to expect it.

Yours may be a different problem, but consider this first.

Front wheel shakes bad


Hi,food for thought,have you checked that the wheele bearing is not worn(put bike on centre stand hold wheele on tyre 6 clock and pull with one hand and push with other hand)and see if you can feel eney play in the bearing,if so replace,also with bike still on back wheele spine wheele and see if it pins freely and that the discs are not warped,if not then if there is a fork brace check that it is tight ,check that the head racers are not loose or worn,with bike still on centre stand hold weele with one hand and front brake with other hand push and pull with wheele strate towards and away from bike and feel for play if there is try tightening,if not,then turn front forks left and right still holding the forks and wheele in same place do this slowly and when the wheele gose past the centre piont(strate)feel for eney notchy ness,if not bearing should be ok,if there is notchy ness replace,if its none of these I would get the wheele rechecked that it was balanced right,all the best hope you get to the bottom of the problem.

My Bike pedal cranks both of them kinda move / feel like their popping/creaking side to side when i'm biking. I've tightened both of them but it just kinda changed the feel and sound but didnt help.


Hi Jordan:
There are 2 places it could be moving:
1) The pedals and you already checked them.
2) The centre assembly. That's the part that rotates in the frame. There will be bearings in there and there will be nuts on each side that hold them in place. If you can put the bike upside down then you can take it apart, clean all the bits then grease them and re-assemble.
Take your time. keep the pieces organized, and you'll do fine.
Odds are you'll have it fixed.
If the bearings are mangled or cracked you'll need to get new ones.
It's a fun project!
Cheerfuls.

2004 harley flstc ignition goes on even when ignition is switched to accessories


Sounds right to me. Follow the wire from the ignition switch. ie. the acc wire (one wire) should be getting power. That wire powers the radio circuit. i suspect it it feeding the or an ignition power circuit now.

Correct procedure to remove rear tire from 2007 suzuki intruder vl1500.


Do you mean tyre or wheel.? Tyre removal requires the use of a tyre bead breaker and levers and rim protectors, once the tyrehas been broken away from the wheel all around on both sides , start tyre removal with the valve at about 1oclock insert a rim protector followed by a tyre lever and rest it against the rim protector and under the first bead of the tyre, then push the tyre into the middle of the wheel rim at about 6oclock on the rim, and keep it down while yuo push down the tyre lever against the rim pulling the tyre over the rim at the valve end, you will then need to insert another lever close to the ready inserted one to continue pulling the tyre over the rim all the way around untill removed completely, wheel removal on this bike is easy, securing the bike is not, because of the rear fender design you will have to lift the bike high enough to remove the wheel from the rear of the bike once it has been removed from the bike, Remove the securing nut from the r,hand side its a little fiddely unless you remove the exhaust silencers which is probably the best bet, remove the rear caliper and carrier from the bike, pull the wheel spindle from the left side out, it may need a slight. Knock to start from the r,hand side, then the caliper. Carrier can be removed , note order of spacers, and place in a safe place for replacment, from the right grab the wheel with both hands and pull gently untill it is removed from the diff, carefully remove from the frame takeing care not to mark the wheel or other paintwork, and not to dismount the vehicle fro its stand,

hi, sounds like the fuel tank breather pipe is blocked or traped, lift the tank find the pipe from the botom of the tank which is not conected to the fuel tap, this will fit to a spigot/pipe union on the underside of the tank it may be under a plastic cover on this bike if my memory serves me rite,the pipe should hang loose and exit under the bike, you may find 2x pipes 1 is for overfueling and the other is tank breather, oherthings maybe on this model the vent is in the fuel cap itself, open cap inspect ruber seal for condition,if it has been replaced with an aftermarket seal or home made 1 poss this could be preventing the air flow, you could remove the cap completely, pop to a motorfactors buy a cheap plastic fuel cap fit it for trial and error purposes ride the bike, if the bike rides fine then you know the issue is with the fuel breather, if it is you would be best to remove the tank and completely check out the breathing apature,

Steering problem GSXR600 SRAD


A couple of things... are the tyres matched? You said you have changed the rear and the front is worn - this will definitely have an effect on handling, as will tyre pressures. The correct sizes for your tyres are: Front 120/70 ZR-17, Rear 180/55 ZR-17
You should ALWAYS use matched tyres - even differences between models in the same brand will be different and you shouldn't mix and match unless you are an expert - and I mean a real expert - pro racer or similar.
Tyre pressures for your bike are : 36psi front and rear. Unless your tyre manufacturer says different, use that figure. Unless all those things are right, you can't begin to diagnose handling issues.
Good luck!

My bike is has just done over 4000 miles and due a service. however, i am getting a slight wobble from the front and rear wheels. what could be causing this?


what tyres are you running ? do you do lots of commuter miles or is the bike used for fun ? id hazard a guess that the tyres ae past there best and either stepped or feathered ,run your hand across the tyre from side to side is there a flat spot ? or does it feel like it is stepped if you start at the centre of the tread and run your hand to the side of the tyre .. a new set of tyres should have your bike back and handling at its best , you will be amazed what a difference it will make .
hope this is of help
kind regards
