The neck bearings in these bikes are junk.
Check for replacement with a brand called "All Balls", they are a taper bearing rather than the junk ball bearings from Honda.

    A company nammed ALL BALLS makes a tapered bearing replacement which is much better than the cheap round bearing that were installed by Honda.

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.

2oo5 dyna low rider shakes

Not likely the crankshaft. Check the motor-mounts though, problems there, loose out of alignment etc could be the problem. If the front end shakes it could be wobble, check tire condition, age and cupping, balance and wheel straightness, damage, wheel bearings and axle not loose, if a laced wheel check spokes for tightness.

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.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.

4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing end play.
9. Improperly vehicle alignment.
10. Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires are out-of-round or eccentric with the hub.
13. Rims and tires are out-of-true sideways.
14. Loose spokes.
15. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.

When I let go of my handlebars the bike shakes bad. Was told it was my tire. I replaced it but it didnt help. If i let go of the handlebars only for a second, it shakes bad....

You need to check the trueness of the rim, The front Axel my be bent. One of the fork tube may be bent. Fork tube oil in one of the tubes may be low. The neck bearings my need replaced or tightened.

Quinny Buzz stroller

The base fits into the two adapters on the chassis, then once fitted you can chage seat position by pushing down the two buttons on either side of the seat unit you can move the seat up and down as you want. Also to unfold you simply push the button in the middle of the handlebar (the same button you use to adjust the height of the handlebar) you hold this button in and sort of give it a little shake and the chassis should unfold pretty much by itself and sort of 'pops up.'

Unfolding the Chassis - Handlebar Loose

I had the same problem... the handlebar would 'un-pop' and shake around a lot making the whole stroller unsteady. I started to get all upset and worried about sending it back but i decided to clean it first. After using the silicon spray from the maintenance kit on the joints of the stroller IT WORKS LIKE NEW! yay! Try this before assuming its broken :)
