Hello All,

I am new to the forum, to KLR’s and to riding! I have some limited dirt bike and street bike experience and just picked up a 2007 Gen1 for my first personal motorcycle.

I first noticed the wobble 30 minutes into a ride. It is a very pronounced handlebar shake in 2nd gear, around 20mph. The shake goes away as speed increases, and is not as bad in first gear.

Details: 2007 Gen1 6000 miles, I am 6’2 and 190lbs.
I have the eagle mike fork braced installed, progressive springs.
The tires are Michelin Anakee Adventure tires, good condition.

Any tips on where to start would be very appreciated.

Thanks,
Ben

Thank you! Upon further inspection my front tire is definitely low.

I went to go check the pressure and fill, but it seems like the valve stem doesn’t want to let air in or out. Do I need to replace the whole thing? I’ll start with replacing the core tomorrow.
