I must admit that I'm noticing the shimmy is worse the faster I travel. Also I noticed it can happen at speeds usually 70 to 90 and up in a turn when I have the bike leaned over just this side of dragging the floor boards. I notice if I move up from the seat to sit on the back of the gas tank, the problem disapates as if the front end is too light. It seems to get better when I remove the windshield and the side wind deflectors.
I have changed the fork oil a few times in the past most recently last year when a racing mechanic reworked/fabricated fork valving for me in an attempt to aleviate the problem. That too made the issue better. What fork oil weight do you recommend? Do you know where I might acquire a fork brace? Couldn't find one on line.
Thanks for responding. Hope you might advise based on my response.
I looked into Rickor valving, but the don' make the product for 45mm forks (actually 44.84mm).
I'm at a loss
Good deal, a little more info and looks like were there! From what I've read in the past our rear shock does not support what your pushing it through and sounds like it's reaching its limit with regards to wear and how your riding it. Have to agree with Saddlbag & Byten2it. I think if you trim your shield down a couple inches you might see a bit of improvement and the fork deflectors absolutely are adding to it as I noticed a good bit of differnced once I added mine. Not going to rule out wheel balance, just replaced both tires and she does shimmy a bit more than before. I can't find the thread that has the fork spring replacement recommendations but it might be on the other forum that charges an annual fee. Front bearings are a low cost point to trouble shoot from... Keep us posted on what you come up with!
