How do I get out of the death wobble?
Begin by using a jack to lift one of your front wheels off the ground and place your hands on the top and bottom of the wheel. Try to wiggle the wheel from the top and bottom, if you feel movement, your wheel bearing is most likely worn out and should be replaced. Move to the other side and repeat this test.
What happens if bike is not started for 6 months?
Idling the bike does not warm up the entire engine/transmission and driveline. This causes acids to form inside the engine as well as water vapors, which will cause corrosion over time. Those acids and water vapor burn off when you ride the bike and heat the entire system up to operating temperatures.
How long can we keep bike without starting?
