front tire wobble

Post by guardsman » Sun Jun 21, 2009 4:21 am


A friend and I went on a bike ride earlier today and noticed that the front tire wobbled when I let go of the grips for a second and stopped once I grabbed them. Could the front tire be out of balance?

That's pretty common on all years of Goldwings. Most times it's not an out of balance wheel, it's a cupped tire. Not much you can do about it except not let go of the handlebars - or replace the tire.
