yMy new T100 is doing something similar with only a little over 200 miles on it. When I am cruising around 40-45 mph the front end seems to pulsate every other second or so. This also seems to happen on decel. Not sure what to make of it and thought it may be road conditions at first but now I am thinking it may be the bike
Besides checking air pressure and balance, make sure the rim is round. My first Bonneville didn't get 500 feet from the dealership when I tried to ride it home, due to severe vibrations. Turns out, the rim has welded incorrectly and the dealership swapped my rim and tire for another off a Bonneville T100 for sale.Air pressure is fine, so I assume the balance is out slightly. Guess I'll have to run it by the dealer or wait till the 500 mile checkup.
Will do. I hope to take it to the dealer this Saturday, but I haven't heard back yet for confirmation. Hopefully it is a quick fix.hey jeiser, if you get your wheels balances, let me know if that did it for you.
my thruxton does the same thing, vibrates a little bit in between 40 and 55 mph. I dont recall it doing this before and I did have the rims painted. So i had the spokes and wheels remounted after the paint job and that is when I first noticed it.
Its not too bad so im living with it now but if the wheel balancing fixes it, ill take them in to get rebalanced. could be the wheel wasnt trued properly too i guess but i specifically asked the people who did it and they said they trued it properly so who knows.
