Tire runout

Post by planefixr » Thu Aug 04, 2011 7:17 pm

I purchased a 2010 gl1800 and have the wobble in the front end at 30-40. took it back to dealer they balanced rear tire, but still has some wobble. I checked the radial runout on the rear tire and it checked .070. cant find any specs. anyone know if this is to much? thanks, Steve

I have found that a lot of 1800's (including my own) have this wobble at this same speed. Mine stops every time I get new tires and eventually returns when the tire is about half worn.
