2015 TTSE front end wobble at 45 mph while cruising.
« on: June 11, 2016, 06:37:45 pm »
So i love my TTSE she's a beautiful black with metallic highlights.  I've got 600 mile on her and since about 200 miles its got a wobble in the steering mostly at 45 mph. Has anyone had this problem and was it resolved? And how was it resolved.

Carson. ride on.

Never noticed any wobble, can ride with no hands if I want to!

Is there any fork oil leakage?? For some reason they seem prone to fork oil leaks initially, myself included. Once fixed, had no problem since. However, if oil has leaked especially from only one side suspension will be effected.

Also, some people have had warped brake disks, obviously if warped that could be causing a wobble/judder too.

Any play in the headstock or front wheel?? Get it up on the centre stand and have someone sit on the rear end and then give the front wheel and forks a good waggle and see if it feels solid

Mine did that with the original tires and once I finally replaced the front and had it balanced when mounted it went away.  I would guess it is PROBABLY front wheel balance.  Too bad balancing isn't done on the bike to balance all the rotating bits.  Be sure to check all the other stuff too.  Mine was more a bit of an annoyance initially, then I got so I didn't even notice it since it didn't pose any safety issues.  The new tire was an eye opener, though.

Brand New bike. perelli tires. bike has now 600 miles on it. wobble started at 200 miles.  Dealer balanced front tire and no real difference.

600 Miles?

Sounds like a warranty issue.  Also, it is my experience that things that make steering wobble, never get better with time.

Let them figure it out, the bike should ride like it is on rails.
