T120 Head Shake, Who has it?
Wanted to see who else might be encountering head shake on their T120. I have a 2017 T120 and have a noticeable head shake from about 54mph down to 45-46 mph. If I remove my hands from the bars it will get violent to the point of going into a tank slapper essentially. I know ride with your hands on the bars, but the problem is it is still noticeable when you have your hands on the bars and just does not seem right. I was at the dealership today and they checked, spokes, steering stem, tire pressure etc. and basically told me to live with it or maybe get a stabilizer if I am that worried about it. I have ridden numerous bikes and numerous miles and have never had this issue on any of them at 55 mph. Of course at super high speeds I have seen this on other rides, but 55mph is like the speed I am constantly in around town. Anyway wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue and if you figured it out. Maybe its my tires? (Not pressure or anything, just the make/model) Any help would be appreciated.
