Ssr 125 front wheel vibrates

Recommended Posts

When riding faster (over 25 mph) the front wheel start vibrating- softly grinding.

Wheel is tight. Ball bearings seem fine.

Time for a new wheel?

Thanks!

Could the wheel be out of balance?  This is easy to check and correct. 

Prop the bike off the ground and check that the wheel is free to spin without any drag.  If the wheel comes to rest at the same location after a few tries, take some 1/8" tin-lead solder and wrap some around a spoke opposite the heavy side.  Repeat until the wheel stops at random locations. 

Good luck.
