Put on a new front tire this weekend. Out riding, now the bike seems to headshake alot easier. should I, increase preload in back, or increase compression in front? Or, neither of these??

Was the new tire properly balanced? Does it shake only on hard acceleration or other times? Only when going over bumps in the road? Need a little more info.

Like above have the balance checked. Also if the tire is taller or shorter you have changed the weight distribution of the bike and that can cause instability as well.

There's more than one reason a bike shakes it's head, so I need to ask:

Under what conditions does it 'headshake'???

Can you reproduce the symptom??? Of so, exactly how???

Scott :)
