    Default Death Wobble

    I just mounted some new avon cobra chromes with a 260 rear and 150 up front and am noticing a pretty bad wobble. The tires are the only thing I've changed this season and i didn't have this issue last year. I thought it was a balance issue as i realized i didn't have balance weights on my tires when i first noticed the wobble (not sure if they fell off or shop didn't put them back on). It would start at around 90mph, seemed fine up to there. I've since added balancing beads and it seemed to help a little but I'm still getting a wobble. It's not as bad at 90 anymore but gets worse at 100. I do have a WOC fairing and Tsukayu saddle bags but they have been on 2 years now and never had this problem. Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated.

    How much weight in balancing beads did you add? Might not be enough.

    I used 3oz in the rear and 2oz in the front based on what was recommended from the manufacturer.
