    how to stop speed wobbles???

    Heres the deal, I'm at balance point in my second gear standups, and after a while, I think when the wheel stops spinning, the bikes starts a wobble. How can I stop this?

    Reach over the bars and keep turning the wheel.

    NIce to hear you're up long enough that the wheel stops.

    i have the same prob on my R1 on the rare occasion i get a long enough stretch of road for the front wheel to stop spinning. it's a matter of physics. gyroscopic motion gives you balance. when u lose the gyro, u lose the balance and the bike tends to become unstable. watch Servin It Up for a perfect example of what happens to a Yamaha when u get a wobble at balance.

    No one can help with any info??? I watched the front wheel last night and it is the cause of the wobble, no more spin.

    Quit braggin! we all get the point that you can wheely long enough the front stops rolling jk

    have you tried swaying the handle bars from side to side?

    get your wheel rebalanced....if that doesn't help then there's not much you can do now, is there?

    Pm teetee, or JB and see what they say.

    lol. #1 the longer the front wheel spins the more balance.

    #2 only hit the rear brake if yer not moving, dont wanna land a endo all sideways wif the rear wheel stopped, makes a horrible noise.lol

    Do a fender grab and just keep spinning the tire with your hand. It's a basic manouever man, get with it
