What I have found with the clam shell in the faster speeds, and especially if there is heavy crosswind, I need to tuck in and that makes me much more stable.traktime said:The clam shell position is also not the best for very high speeds and can add some instability.
The fall away is the measurement used to determine the "tightness" or "looseness" of the fork stem nut. The fall away is part of the suggested 1000 mile check up. I don't know where you are on mileage. If you are experiencing the dreaded "fork clunk" the dealer will fix that under warrantee and the fall away will be set during that process. It is very easy to do it yourself takes 20-30 min. The service manual spells it out pretty clearly.harleymon55 said:At the time of my speeding flight there wasn't any cross wind. I have to ask; what is fall way? Also, is this a warrenty issue? When I go to the dealer this Wednesday for my SERT and K&N filter to be instaled and dynoed I'll ask them to check the steering due to my experience. One other thing, I put 400 miles on the bike since removing the baffles (v-mod). The dealer told me last week that driving it this way as long as I didn't do anything else, everything will be alright till I get my SERT & filter instaled this Wednesday. Was he right or wrong?
