I have had my 2017 1090 Adv R now for a year and I am running an Anakee front and Motoz Tractionator rear.
The issue I have is, when above 100km/h, the front end feels very flighty. Not that it weaves about on its own so much but any input to the bars will initiate a wobble that I fear could translate to a tank slapper at higher speeds…. Really not confidence inspiring!
I don’t know really what would be causing it or if it is a common trait of the 1090?
Could it be a chunky knobby rear tyre doing it? I feel I should be able to ride this thing fast without constantly feeling like the front is going to spaz out on me! And yes, all suspension was checked and reset to factory specs. Also changed the steering damper oil to 10WT which didn’t help. Any ideas???
Oddly, at high speeds, and I know this sounds counter intuitive, if you get a wobble, let go one hand.
the fix I’m not sure.
I had it at 103 mph and if I had my hands off the bars slowing down it would get a shake at about 40mph.
I have thought about the beads but haven’t tried yet.
I did give the headstock a tightening crank and it elevated somewhat.
I think I will release the headstock nut and reseat it. I have very little trust in the monkeys who assembled it at the dealership before I got it. Love to hear other ideas
