I don't think I've noticed this before, but if I hold the brakes and push the handlebars back and forwards, there is some play - like rubber bushings or dampers.

Here is a video of what I'm talking about on my bike:


Does this movement seem excessive? What is this part called where the bottom of the U-Clamp connects to the fork? What are the torque settings for those bolts?

Ok, I've found it in the manual now. The bushings seems to be referred to as 'silent blocks'. Not really sure how I could eliminate them on the standard setup.

I can't see a torque setting for them though. I've only done 7,000 miles over 2.5 years - although 95% of that is commuting in London, so a lot of stop starting.

Have you got a link to the rizoma ones that you have?

I am aware that there are 2 rubber rings in between the handle bar clamp and the forks clamp to reduce vibration sending to your hands while driving.
These 2 rings seem to be depleted and you might need to check and replace?

I started looking into it because when I use front brakes at slow speed, it feels like my handlebars are juddering/vibrating.

The joys of rubber mounted bars. :02.47-tranquillity:

I hate them, the above video shows why. I want fixed bars.

With the alternate bar clamps I have on my DS the upper side is fixed now, and there is only wiggle room on the underside of the triple tree. Which I don't really like still.

Some carefully chosen washers could solve this for you DCasserly .

good luck!
