Hi, Jeff - in cold country Oklahoma!!!neumsky said:Does anybody else out there have head shake with there LT's ??? Mines an 06 Thanx Jeff
In actuallity the rake was changed for slow speed handling, i.e. parking lots. LTs handle just fine in the twisties without the change in the rake. And even the older LT's had the wobble problem, mine was always cause by worn tires, but not necessarily always a worn front.Colyn said:My information is that this wobble was induced by the change in rake in 2005 to make the bike more agile in twisties.
Tyres, tyre pressure and tyre wear can enhance this.
Reality is that it happens on any speed below 80kmh, depending on tyre, rider weight and rider position but it only happens if both hands go off the handles.
The response from Germany was ... "You have no business letting go of the handle bars at any stage." ... paraphrased of course
