The cheapest way is to buy a new tube to see if that was the problem. Sometimes tubes can inflate bigger at one area than others. If not check to see if the rim is true, meaning that it is not bent, if so replace. It could also be the tire.

    if your wheel wobbles then you need a new rim.

Why does my rear passenger wheel in my 1992 ranger still wobbel really bad even after replacing the rim and tire with brand new ones? What could the problem be i need help pleaseeeee!!!


You need to remove and refit wheel as it sounds as if it has not reseated properly.if it has been fitted correctly and all nuts tightened then any further wobble is either due to wheel balance ,,,, or due to compromised structure supporting wheel which need to be checked immediately..i.e. Drive shaft ....axle.....wheel bearing etc.

I have a 1996 ST1100 non ABS with a front end wobble. It seems to have started when I switched from bias ply tires to radial tires. However in the mean time I went ahead and had the steering stem bearings...


problems like this are best discussed with an accredited bike shop who has experience with wheel wobbles
you have changed the front tire to radial but did you change the back tire at the same time as radials and cross ply ( bias ply) tires have different handling characteristics
the wobble may be like a lack of compatibility between case constructions and I am thinking this because you say that the problem goes when changing back to the bias ply

Just bought bike and now the rear tire is flat, do i need to replace the inner tube or can it be fixed another way. what size tube do i need to replace it.


I recommend replacing the inner tube, the size is on your tire. I think that you should pay to have it done at a repair shop if it has gears, it will be worth it in the long run

My jeep jogging stroller has a flat. Do I need to


Replacement tube may be more beneficial even though the fix/patch may be cheaper. If you live in an area that have varying climate, the patch along with the repaired tube can expand and contract and may cause small leak if not repaired properly.

Otherwise I would get the right size tube, most jogging strollers are either 12" or 16" tube inside and can be bought from your local bicycle store. With that, you'll need bicycle tire levers which can also be bought at the bike shop. Just about any type of tire levers will do. Of course I'm sure your bike shop can do this for you to possibly for free with a purchase of replacement tube!

Fxdwg wobbles at 75+mph


I was reading about a fix for this in IronWorks magazine just recently. I thinking January or February issue. If I remember right I think they actually said it is a kit with a stabilizer. I'll see if I can find the right one and follow up. they post the past issues on their website but I think you have to subscribe to the magazine to access the website. I love the magazine!! I have gotten lots of ideas and helpful information for my old shovelhead.

Front wheel wobbles


More than likely the wheel is out of true. There are 2 choices,

1 Buy a spoke wrench and attemp to true the wheel. You can do this by spinning the wheel to locate the spot where the wheel goes furthest to one side then tighten the spoke coming from the opposite side. Do this slowly 1/2 turn at a time. Do not over tighten the spoke. It may be necessary to loosen the other side slightly.

Alternate spokes between both sides of wobble.

2 Take bike to a good local bike shop to be tuned and have the wheels trued. Most shops offer a tune up at low cost. A well tuned bike will last a long time.

Wobbles


They didn't balance the front wheel quite correctly, and I hope to God your friend is achieving those speeds at the track and not on public roads.

Death wobble


My Death Wobble started immediately after I installed a set of Coil Spring Spacers (to lift 1.75 inches) on my stock 2005 Jeep Wrangler X. Turned out, the DW was because while changing the height, I also lowered the CASTER angle in the front end. So, to fix it, I could have purchased a set of eccentric bolts for $50+. Instead I went out and purchased a piece of 1.5 inch flat bar for $10 from OSH. I cut out 4 1.5 inch squares. Then i drilled 7/16 inch holes centerline, but close to one side (in exactly the same place) on all for squares. I then removed the lower control arm bolts, nuts and washers. I installed these square offset washers I made so the front axle would be pushed forward (to increase the Caster angle). The toe setting changed a bit, so I reset them to about 1/8 inch toe in. After driving my Jeep, I noticed there is no more DW. The steering wheel was off center, but after 3 attempts, I have that perfectly centered. I have every intension of having the alignment checked, but not till after I find the new tires I want. If anyone is interested, I can draw out and photograph the cure and send it to you. My e-mail is bb62471(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Just take it to your local bike shop. They should be able to fix it. The wheels/tires are basically small bicycle wheels/tires.
