Xr650l Speed Wobble???

Recommended Posts

When I’m on the freeway once my bike hits low 80’s I get a super bad speed wobble. But everything under 85 feels perfect. I can cruise all day 70-75. I thought it may be the bridge stone trail wings because I’ve heard a lot of bad things about those lol. There’s no uneven wear on the tires and I tightened all of the spokes 1/8 turn. I know there’s really no reason to go above 80 but on google the 2016 xr650l’s top speed is around 100mph, and the way mine is with the speed wobble it seems impossible

It's the tires.

Knobbie type tires don't offer stability when the speeds come up. 

Bridgestone Trailwings on mine, oem tires.  Have had ZERO issues with mine so no, its not the tires.
