Rich998a said:It's got to be something rotating which is causing the issue. Have you checked the tyres for damage or uneven wear? Checked the rims as well for damage? I'd guess that should be picked up by the tyre shop when it was re-balanced. If they just checked them and didn't remove the weights at all, get them to remove them and start from scratch.
Then I guess you should move on to checking the rotors/discs condition.
I have a nightmare with the p38's balancing on the 18" Hurricanes and using road tyres (Hankook RH06). I must be due for a 4rd rebalancing now and I've only done 20K on the tyres. Last time around I told the shop to remove the stick-on weights and just use the normal tap on weights and that extended the milage between the last re-balance and the ones prior to this.
Before you yell at us with your insipid multiple exclamation points you might want to keep in mind that a steering damper only hides various issues. If your tyres are out of balance (bounce) a damper will have little if any impact. If your rig is out of alignment (shimmy) it will help hide the issue but does not solve the issue. Same with worn ball joints/tie rod ends, bushings etc. Solve the root cause and there is very little need for a damper.Has anyone checked the steering damper!!!!!!!!!!!
There is no damper on this model.Has anyone checked the steering damper!!!!!!!!!!!
