+1 with TWW still sport'n Dunlop Elite. Never had a wobble.I've still got the OEM dunlops on front and back and I've never had the "wobble". I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I hear a lot of good things about Bridgestones. I'm sure others will chime in here shortly with their opinions. Ride safe...
Had the wobble until I started using 41psi in both Wing tires. A Superbrace improved the overall handling for me, especially the slow maneuvering. Oh, I run Dunlop OEMs.Getting ready to replace the front tire, anyone have any success with reducing the 40 mph wheel wobble with different tires? I've been running dunlops.
My experience also. Almost 4,000 miles on the rear car tire and about 3,000 miles on the Bridgestone 709 front. I checked it today with hands off the bar and no wobble at the infamous mph. The test for me is at the 8,000 mile mark , as that is the miles I bought the bike at. The wobble with hands off the bar was there from the beginning and continued through my front and rear replacement set of Metz 880's. I'm cautiously optimistic.My VTX had the wobble and my wing did also with the orginal Dunlops (not Elite's). Even at 40mph the wobble is not bad as long as when there is throttle input; its when you let off the throttle that the wobble starts, at least for me. Now with CT on the rear and Stone 709 in front I have no wobble, even when letting off the throttle. Also, I didn't even balance the CT on the rear. I probably shouldn't say this, but when on cruise, and on the 4 lane,I can ride 10 or 12 miles without hands as long as the curves aren't too bad.
No offense taken. As a matter of fact I know you are right. I hope my wife don't see this post. It's just that I have very few thrills left. I know a guy who claimed that he could put a wing on cruise and then hop in the back seat and steer with the passenger floorboards. That is one that I am not going to try.Ron: I don't know him real well (The Lord). But you would know the story of when you get to heaven of where you look back over your life. And he point out that there are two foot marks in the sand (his and yours) then you notice just one set of foot marks in the sand. "Lord how come in that part there is only one set of foot marks in the sand." "Dear Ron that is where I carried you." So Eric will say. "Please Ron the Lord is too busy to take control of your wing when you are not holding the handle bars."
No offence intended, this is intended to be light hearted. Eric
