Re: Bad front end shake/tank slap when decellerating abruptly from 40 mph
Could be the front or rear tire, weak shocks, loose bearings on the swing arm attachment points, bad ball joint up front, bad balance, or a bad steering damper. Personally, I think out of round tires or stretched beads is the cause. That's my opinion. There are lots of others out there. It is a common problem. I have not had it occur since I started being very careful about stretching the beads when mounting my tires. If you hear a "pop" when you are spooning the new tire on, it is my belief you have streched the bead and you will have the problem.
