Speed Wobbles

Hey am I the only guy having a hard time feeling secure at high speed on this bike? anything over 100mph and the bars are moving back and forth big time. anyone know of a damper thats made for us yet?

Have you checked your tyre pressures or adjusted the suspension incorrectly, I think a steering damper will just bandaid another problem you have if it fixes it

no problems here, I've had mine over 140 on a few occasions, still solid, I agree with nicka, check your tyres (condition and pressure) and suspension and make sure everything is done up tight

Balancing the wheel will also help.

PSI's are good, I'm running 36f and 38r, i assume the balance is good from factory, only 1k on bike so tire is still good, of course it is a dunlop,, had to replace the rear because of a **** nail. the bikes felt like this since the day i got it.

I have no idea and would be the last to give advice on how to setup suspension , I'm just suggesting maybe something is not set right with the setup

No problems at redline 6th gear. Suspension has been set up. Im also running 36 front 38 rear psi. But I would like a steering dampener. The only ones I've seen requires cutting the key housing cover though
