So far my bike and my Buddy's bike have been through everything. They've changed everything on the front end front and rear tires 3 times, wheels, steering dampener, some kind of bushing and we both still have this wobble. It's not only the when you go from 60 to 40 wobble but the bike wobbles as i pull out of my driveway at like 15 mph. We've tried bridgestone and mets belted and nothing has changed . As a matter of fact i think it's getting worse.
A little bit of back round both of us have been riding for over 30 years both on and off road, both a enduro riders, both have had a number of street bikes, ( i have had 3 BMW's) and both are 05's blue. Maybe it's the color??
We got a call from the dealer who by the way has done everything possible (Hermy's BMW) including sending us both high end Italian made steering dampeners to try and didn't bill us for them. We haven't had a chance to try them yet, they need to be custom fit and i just haven't had the time.
We got a call from Hermy and he said the sales rep. was coming up so we should be there at 9:30 so he can test ride our bike's. I live 20 mi. so not a big deal for me but my buddy live 150 mi. so it was a longer ride for him. When we arrived at 9:45 the sale rep wasn't there yet so we took some bike's for demo rides. He finally showed up at 10:45 then went in the back for 1:45 minutes to do some computer work wile we sat in the show room waiting. That just got us more mad
. He finally geared up and took them both for a ride, but first he said if you expect me to take my hands of the bars at 40 mph. i can't do that. There is no law saying you have to ride with two hand's on the bar's but that's not the problem, the problem is when riding back roads and chopping the throttle at 60 to go into a corner you can feel the wobble through the bars. Well the rep came back and said there was a problem but he didn't think it was so bad, (that's why i left my hand gun home) and he would send his report to Germany. We left and i took an 06 RT home for a long test ride. When i got home i called Hermy's to tell him the rt wasn't for me ( i had an 04 rt ) he told me the sales rep said to change my drive shaft. Isn't that ODD?
My buddy has already filed for lemon law ( we live in PA.) I haven't yet i want to try the dampener first. The biggest problem is there are no other bikes out there that we want. We both love every thing about the bike except the fact that it scares the shit out of you when you ride it. I'll keep you informed about the outcome off the drive shaft. I would like to here if anyone else has gotten rid of the wobble. Hay maybe its the color, are all the one that wobble blue???
