  • Flop test seemed to pass ( Video )

    So I bought a Jack , Jacked er up. Did a flop test. The wheel seemed pretty sturdy. I took a video just to make sure I am doing to it right and get second opinions.
    Thank you all for your help!

    Seems tight...did younadjust it from where it was at? I like 13-15 ft lbs on a bike with a full windshield or fairing.

      Too tight. It should fall with one push and not bounce when it hits the stops.

        So I need to loosen that sucker? To Tight will cause instability as well?

          Too tight is bad like too loose is bad...did you just use a spanner or a hammer/screwdriver to tighten? Really want to get the specialty tool that allows you to use a torque Wrench

            So I got one of these, I never took it apart yet. I didn't know to tight was a good thing. So Tomorrow after work that is going to be my project. The only thing I am nervous about is not having a torque wrench yet.

              To work on this bike you need a 1/2 in torque wrench (foot pounds) and a 1/4 in torque Wrench (inch pounds). That is the tool I use along with torque wrench. Try loosening a bit and torquing to 14 foot pounds

                  I have a Pittsburgh inch pound torque wrench and it seems to work fine. When you get in the low torque range, that is when you need to use the inch pound instead of the foot pound wrench for better accuracy. If you don't, you risk stripping the threads in the soft aluminum when you are torquing down bolts.

                    This video is like starting a conversation in the middle of a sentence. You never stated whether or not you are having a problem with stability on the road. First thing I ask is "are you having a problem" or did you just buy a jack and decide to use it to do a flop test. If you are not having a problem don't mess with what is not broke.

                        Mort, In that link he said "wrenched off the fairing, pulled out the radio wire, Took it out for a ride, ripped it up to 75 and it felt and handled like a champ. "
                        That tells me the fairing angle was the issue and he doesn't have a handling issue anymore. But I could be wrong.

                          Yes improper fairing mounting but didn't remove all wobble at speed without the fairing on but did improve it immensely.
