If the swingarm wobbles from side to side, you need to replace the swing arm bushings. You'll have to support the engine/transmission while you remove the swingarm. Once out, you can drive out the old bushings and replace them with new ones. It's not that big of a job except for pulling the rear wheel. Just watch the sequence in which the parts on each side of the swingarm come out and put them back the same way.

Good Luck
Steve

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.

Regards,

1995 camry front end wobbles at any speed including steering wheel shake


You probably need to get the tires balanced. One of the balancing weights may have come off.
Make sure the lugnuts are tight.
