  • 2005 roadstar front tire seems to go up and down between 30 and 40 mph

    2005 roadstar front tire seems to go up and down between 30 and 40 mph , bike never sits more than 30 days, its not my daily driver...michelin commander II's, not old or high mileage, rim not out of round or bent, no cupping apparent

    I'm a little confused by what "up and down" means here. do you mean tire pressure, wobble, bouncing.....what is up and down?

      If you are getting readings between 30-40 without adding air then you need a new gauge. If it is going down from 40 to 30 after a few weeks then you need to un-mount the tire,clean the bead area on the tire and rim and maybe even use bead sealer on it when you reinstall the tire.

          Remove the lead weights and add either DynaBeads or RideOn per instructions.

              Buy 3 bottles ride on via ebay for about $40..put 1.5 bottles in each tire. That will eliminate balance issue at least.

                    I've used both dyna beads and rideon. Between the 2 I like and use rideon. When I used the beads I still got feather edging on the front tire after using rideon they wear even. Keep in mind that that beads fall to the bottom of the tire every time you stop, the rideon stays in place and is balanced even at low speeds that the beads haven't balanced yet.

                      I've used Ride On in my last 4 sets of tires. It's the bee's knees! There is a chart of how much you should use just to balance and how much to use to balance and protect from punctures. I always use the later.

                    That black stuff is likely tire rubber powder. Don’t use those beads. Get new ones. I prefer RideOn because it stays put when I stop and provides some puncture protection. Follow the instructions, don’t just put 1.5 bottles per tire.

                          I was told by tech at ride on that if you use a couple ounces more per tire it won't hurt anything at all and better than not getting enough in the tire. For example if the chart calls for 10 ounces and a bottle is 8 ounces...you need another bottle for the 2 ounces. Also you never get all of the liquid put of the bottle and into your tire. On my custom 18 in wheels with 180R/150 I used as much of a full bottle in each tire and about a 1/3 of 3rd botthe in front and 2/3 in rear. Works perfectly. There is a chart on their website to let you know how much you use for your tire size.

                            Could this be a neck bearing issue? He said it was oscillating but that could be a loose neck/triple tree issue maybe.
                            Go ahead, I dare ya.
