How long have you had the 9?

I am thinking it is you feeling the 240 rear tire.

Coming off a bike that had a slimmer rear, the 240 could feel like it leans faster the more you lean.

Actually, there could be just a getting use to the bike thing, or there could be some reasons. One could be improprer tire pressure---way to high or way too low could cause it. The other is steering head bearings are bad. Both are not likely, but are possibilities.

How many miles on your nine?
What tires?

I'm thinking since you are a 2009 member, that you have some miles. I would look at the front and see if it's cupped. Also how flat is the center of the rear wheel?

If the bike is in good mechanical order I would say you were just going too slow to keep a 700 plus pound bike vertical and off it's side.

Once you hit a slower rpm the bike cuts and it feels like it is going to fall over at slow speeds , once I installed the GI Pro I found that the bike was more stable at slower speeds as it didn't get all lumpy and cut out at low RPM's

I will check tire pressure. I still have stock tires on with just 2500 miles on them.I have been riding for 20 plus years. It just feels different for some reason.

You may need to increase your speed in the turn just a little, the bike is so heavy that it tends to want to lay down if your going through a turn too slow, otherwise check the tire wear and pressures.

Newton's Laws of Motion

Sounds like it is a simple fix According to Newtons second Law. The alteration of motion is ever proportional to the motive force impress'd; and is made in the direction of the right line in which that force is impress'd.



So just give it more throttle!!!!!!!

Yup I would agree with you Dr.Pegasus its seems to be a small case of weak****itis which is a quite common condition amongst the HD riders so I would recommend regular exercise and a table spoon of cement 3 times a day until the patient can feel the effects of hardening up followed by reduced dosage of one table spoon before sitting on the M109R :bigthumbsup:

Your front tire is much smaller than your back. When you corner the diameter of the contact surface changes more on the front. The back tire is now rolling at a different but still bigger contact point and a little faster than the front and you really feel it in a slow tight corner...very unnerving at first.
It makes it feel like its going to slip out

I'm sorry, but that is nonsense.

Not even close to describing what is actually going on.
But nice try though.

He is simply going too slow for the centripital Force to ballance the weight of the bike. So it wants to fall inward. The inequities of tire size don't come in to play until you get over 15 to 20 mph.
