Hey guys. So I got a couple minor speed wobbles in the last while and was wondering if there is anything I should check afterwards? Could anything come loose or cause damage? Thanks.

I dont get why the second someone experiences a minor issue the cure is a $500 part? :popcorn:

If it could do damage... imagine all the Triumphs & spaghetti framed 70s & 80s bikes that would be piles of scrap. :D

Spend some cash on a mini bike and learn how to move around on it. Will cure 99% of your problems.

Haha I have had a few wobbles in my day so there not all that scary for me, I try not to hesitate and control the problem as quick as possible. But yes they both happened under quick acceleration on uneven roads! Hate to say it but never had that problem with my Gixxer ;p

Steering damper is a band aid, not a cure :fact
