    Fork Brace

    So I've put in new all balls steering head bearings and front wheel is true but I stillhave a little wobble in front end my tires are also new and balanced. I've read threads about fork braces and I believe I have 33mm stock forks but I can't seem to find a fork brace that will work. If any knows some more info on this please chime in thanks again to all members in this forum with out your help I'd be almost lost.

    Fork tubes even in the triple clamps? Everything slides together nicely? Not tweaked from prior crash.

    Wheel bearings?

    Serviced the forks lately?

    Then looky at the rear wheel alignment, swingarm bearings, rear tire balance, shocks. Maybe the wobble's really at the rear, but you're confused.

    This'll start an argument:

    Unless everything else is right and tight you're more likey to cause a wobble w/a forkbrace than fix one. IMO

    Maybe it's the triple tree I don't know alot about it's history it was basicly a barn bike until I fixed it up. The rear is all good new shocks bronze bushings new barrings in both wheels new bushings and shocks made a huge differance in the rear. The bike would be amazing if it wasn't for the slight wobble in front. Oh and I drained Fork fluid and replaced seals in it also.

    Wheel wobble at what speed?
    If tyres and wheels don't have excessive run out, correct tyre pressure (or a few pounds more) and, are correctly balanced, weak forks will cause weave not wheel wobble.
    Direction change will be very slow because gyroscopic effect wants wheel to go in straight line, fork brace helps for that.
    Tyre pressure and tread pattern can cause 'patter' at higher speeds but not usually below 80mph

    wobbles at about 65 worse at 75mph but i also notice when turning it higher speeds it has a tendency to struggle sticking with turn and wants to move towards center lines if that makes sense?
