Front End Shake
This is a new one on me but I suspect that you guys out there will know about it.
Yesterday was HOT in New Jersey.. I was out on my new (to me..) 2007 K1200LT.. I was heading down the road and did something which I never do, and that is take both hands off the handlebars..basically to get some air flow through my fingers.... Much to my amazement, the front end of the beast started to oscillate, gaining side to side momentum. Quickly put my hands back on the bars and all was well...What's that all about...? I've been riding for years and have never experienced anything like this, again, not that I ride hands free except for perhaps an instant or two...
I recall something about front end oscillation on this board before and was wondering what causes it and what I need to do to correct.. Was a bit un-nerving.... Thanks guys, Joel
