  2. Steering 'wobble'

    Hi all, me again. If I'm riding my other bike, Pan European St1100 I can take my hands off the handlebars at any speed and its as smooth as silk. On the XL650 there is a very obvious wobble at around 40mph. It's not there at all if I'm holding the bars even with one hand but take both ands off...

  7. Disappearance of the "wobble"

    Chatter
    since day one of owning thee bike, I have always experienced a bit of a wobble if I took my hands off the handlebar. New tyres, old tyres, bike loaded, bike not loaded, top box on or off, nothing seemed to make much of a difference. It wasn't a major tank slapper but just a gentle wobble...

    Chatter
    Having replaced the radiators off e-bay (Yes! You read that right! I found some!) and put my Alp back together with some fibreglass to assist with plastics strength, I went for a short ride. The last time I rode it - in October - it threw me across the road and down a pavement. I love this...

    Transalp
    Hi all I've got a 6 month old TA which has been great with no problems. However, one thing I've noticed about it is that the handlebars have quite a wobble between about 30-60mph. I took it in for a service yesterday and they had both technicians look at it and told me there's nothing wrong...
