Ferns in S A ?
« on: December 18, 2014, 21:08 »
If you blokes are free, I'm going for a ride this Sunday, don't care what time or from where. Who knows might find a fern.

Sounds good to me. Where and when? Thought SA was a fern free state, or is that fruit fly free.

shrubbery ??? I was thinking a Fern with a couple of white pointers might do the trick.  ;)

Nah mate,it weaves like a drunk.Not really rideable above a sedate pace.

Ha Blab,thats defiantly not right.There not as stable as an SS but you should be comfortable hammering the crap out of it.How are the steering head bearing adjustment.It should swing freely with a slight bump on the end of the bar.One of the Sydney blokes had his slowly tighten while riding on a Wisemans run,it got scary stiff .Luckily I had a cut down shifter big enough to work the top nut.As far as I know there should be contact between the top nut and the bottom nut acting like a locknut.Thats what I think was not happening with Sash's bike but it hasn't been proved yet.Nipping the bottom nut to where it feels right and the tightening the top in my experience over tightens them.Its not easy to get it spot on first time.Hope its that simple.

Nah Vince,Ive been through that,too tight and it tramlines at any speed.
They are probably a touch on the loose side at the moment.
In a straight line it starts to weave at about 140 and gets worse,havent felt safe going over 160.
In sweepers,anything over about 100 will induce a similar weave.
Its actually dangerous to ride semi hard.Add a mid corner bump and I will be all over the road and crashing.

The only things I can think of Blab are the normal things to check: tyre pressures, steering head bearings, swingarm torque settings and wheel alignment.
Seemed to get progressively worse throughout the ride. Slow leak perhaps?
