Bouncy ride

Any one else experience bouncy ride on the Bobber Black during slow (under 50mph) riding ? Took it to the dealership, tires appeared to be balanced and round, they felt it too, but couldn't do anything about it ...

No sorry.

If they felt it to, perhaps ask for a new rear shock?

Wrongly setup forks/shock from the production line perhaps ? Or faulty parts in the shock ?
If the dealers felt it, they must rectify the problem - as itís a safety issue.

I agree with eisen77, there's no way I'd accept 'There's nothing we can do" from a dealer after they experienced the same thing you did. That isn't normal or safe.

Maybe it has something to do with the blacks front tyre:



But seriously, they cant admit it and then say they can't resolve it.

Ironically, I tested a new Bobber Black on the floor, and it too was even more bouncy in the same speed range.

That was my thought too, but, really, it should be a smooth ride at any speed ...

Have a trusted friend ride beside you and maybe slightly behind to see if anything "looks" unusual? Have an agreement in advance that you will ride straight and steady and he will do all the maneuvering!
