    Chances are the bearings on the steering stem need to be tightened. Alternate to that, check the wheel bearings for movement. Get the front wheel balanced.

I have the same problem. It has been that way since it was new. I figured best not to let go of the steering.

Can't control the handlebars. They wobble.


IF you are saying the wobble is side to side then the main bolt that goes from the handlebars to the fork is loose.

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,

Oz

Excessive wobble in handlebars almost losing it


Why in the world are you riding with the bars wobbling?!? Get your bike to a Honda shop right now!

Is it the bars or the whole bike that is wobbling? You could have loose spokes in your wheels, the bike could be out of balance, the bar tree may be coming loose...right now this bike is an accident waiting to happen...take it to a shop NOW!

Handlebars loose


Construct shims from aluminum (soda / cola) cans with scissors. Be careful not to cut yourself, sheared aluminum is very sharp. After you have cut a wide strip of aluminum, wrap it around the handlebar and put it between the handlebar and the clamps. This will increase the diameter of the handlebar and allow your clips to exert more pressure on the handlebars making them tighter. Try not to leave any aluminum exposed after fixing it; it's sharp.

No this is not normal. I had to go through 2 different times having a tire balanced once to get a wobble out.
