Shaky handle bars - February 15, 2009, 11:06 AM

My handle bars are shaking vigorously whenever the front wheels come off the ground .. haven't had a tankslapper yet but am afraid it could happen .. once it come down it it becomes steady .. what could be the reason? .. here are somethings I know
One of the front brake callipers wears more than the other
You can definitely feel the handle bar shake when just riding for the first few minutes (front wheels staying on the ground)
It has the R6 syndrome on handlebars but I dont think it has to do anything with it! HALP!
Thanks

Check the balance on it if it happened right after the new tire. BTW Nate is right ... something is also bent.

I have had someone put my tire on with the rotation going the wrong way. did the same thing.
Check tire rotation, could be as simple as this. I hope.

Also, I have heard two diffrent tread patterns could do this too. If you have mismatched tires. Good luck man, hope its something simple.
