    hi guys

    I had an accident last sunday I was riding my bike and like a 1 or 2 kilometers before the accident my handlebar wobble and stopped...but the second time it wobbled too much and made me crash....
    thanks a God I am really ok
    my left ankle has a sprain and some back and waist paint and also my right arm is in little paint...
    I was wearing full gear that really help me a lot right now the motorcycle is waiting for me at my dealer to tell them what happened and taking a look so I suppose I have to be patient now

    here some pictures

    Bummer, but I'm glad you're doing ok. That's more important than the bike.

    If you haven't been seen by a doctor yet, go do that - especially with the back pain. That's not something you want to screw around with.

    I am really not sure it its normal or my bike had a problem
    I read some threads it was quite normal for this bike so I am not sure now if it was only my bike

    Glad you're alright man, I'm sorry about you and your bike, those pictures are hard to look at but serves as a sobering reminder of the risks we take. Definitely take care of yourself first, and hopefully you're back in the saddle sooner rather than later.


    As far as the wobbles, I get those too on uneven pavement, but I think it's just the suspension that's unable to deal with the terrain. I'm not saying it was the same situation with you, but do you think having had a steering damper would have helped?

    After 3500 miles, I've not experienced handle bar wobbles. I really don't think that's normal.

    Either way, glad you are ok. That bike is totally fucked.

    Glad you're OK. My Sixty2 it is rock solid always. I have a Husky tr650 that wobbles at speeds of 70 and up. But it has knobbies and that is when I noticed the change. You have stock tires, so either you were going way fast or there is/was a problem with the bike.

    Bike looks pretty messed up. You going to fix it?

    Are these wobbles occurring all the time? Or only when you are hard on the gas on uneven road surfaces?

    Maybe it is the difference in the bars between Icon/Classics and the Full Throttle that I have, But I have only once had 1 very minor tank slapper (wobble) on mine. That was totally my fault though as I was taking the p*ss and was hard on the gas coming out of a corner with a very rippled road surface. It only shook the bars once or twice though and then everything was fine, it didn't warrant letting off the gas either.

    Now if your wobbles/tank slappers are more frequent and occurring during normal riding then something else a bit sinister is at work here. I'm unsure what though?
