Last year I posted about a front end wobble. Still having issues - the biggest being that Lola (2008 VStar 1300) would be on her best behavior when someone else rode her or anyone was around to see the wobbling. My husband took her out more than once, and . . . no wobble. When I go out riding with hubby and she started to wobble, I'd pull up next to him and attempt to show him the problem. Again . . . Lo was on her best behavior.
I threatened to rename her Snuffleupagus if she didn't stop messing around.
Before riding last season, I took Lola to a dealership and had two new tires put on and balanced. The brake calipers and pads checked/replaced. They drove her a bit and SURPRISE . . . no wobble
Finally . . . today! We were out riding, and Lola started to wobble. I pulled up next to my husband, let a little pressure off the handlebars and BOOM! Wobble! Hubby did a double take when he saw what was happening. First red light we came to I looked over and said "I TOLD you!".
So, now that someone who is mechanically inclined has seen the problem, we can try and move forward to fix it. BUT . . . new tires, balancing, brakes checked, pretty much everything that would cause a wobble was fixed April 2018. Had a slow year, only logged 5200 miles, so I know isn't wear on any of the parts. I considered maybe that I'm not heavy enough to weigh her down sufficiently (5 feet tall and 112 lb).
Anywho, figured I'd toss something on here to see if anyone has any suggestions on the problem (or fix
). I'd really appreciate it!!
