Headstock shake
« on: January 11, 2015, 01:09:57 AM »
Anyone else experiencing headstock shake when the bike is decelerating nothing extreme I wonder if the front wheel needs balancing as I have just had a new tyre fitted. Any suggestions.

I was surprised how even a small deviation from 36F,42R makes to the CT's behaviour. I also find The Michelin Pilot Road 4s lose their pressure faster, even over the course of a week they can drop quite a bit.

I had the PR2's fitted to mine and they were fantastic suited the bike and the handling was sublime had a puncture and I find out that only PR4's were available because they wanted to promote the new tyre. I have fitted Bridgestones as an alternative and they are rubbish

I agree. The PR4's are 'different'. The profile, the tread and the compound are different and I even wondered if they are more porous than your average tyre but my PR4s need constant attention like a demanding woman though a lot less fun!  :008:

It would be worthwhile checking the play in the steering race bearings, they are known to work loose in the CT.
