        Motorbike handling problems

        Michelin - Les troubles du comportement de la moto

        The main motorbike handling problems are:

        • Wander
        • Wobble
        • Shimmy
        • Vibration


        Wander is an undulatory movement of variable amplitude, occurring in a straight line or on a bend at an average speed of about 88 mph.


        Wobble is a sudden lateral movement of the front end (forks flick left and right), momentary and very rapid, occurring especially when accelerating and triggered by an external stimulus (bump, expansion joints).


        Shimmy is a sustained lateral oscillation of the forks at low speed (< 62 mph) in the deceleration phase.


        The symptoms due to a lack of balancing result in a phenomenon of vibration in a speed range varying from about 55 to 80 mph on the front fork assembly.

        Balancing is essential on a front wheel and recommended on a rear wheel if there is a lot of imbalance.

        Michelin recommends its motorcycle and scooter tires for the models shown in the fitment guide. While every attempt has been made to make this list comprehensive, some makes and models have been omitted.  In most cases this is because Michelin does not offer any appropriate tires for a particular motorcycle, or the manufacturer does not offer the motorcycle for sale in North America. If MICHELIN® tires are available in replacement sizes for a motorcycle that is not listed in the fitment guide consult a Michelin Motorcycle Tire Dealer to confirm compatibility with your specific application.

        NOTE: By using the tire fitment guide, you acknowledge and accept that Michelin North America, Inc. (“Michelin”) is not responsible for any error or omission, nor for any damage or injury resulting from the choice of a recommended tire.  You also acknowledge that it is your responsibility to ensure that the recommended tires are compatible with the technical characteristics of the motorcycle on which they are mounted, including the motorcycle manufacturer’s recommendations.  Moreover, you fully release Michelin North America, Inc. from any liability whatsoever in relation to, or as a consequence of, possible damages resulting from the fitting of tires not recommended in this guide.  Michelin recommends the tire pressure specified by the motorcycle manufacturer, except where otherwise stated.

        IMPORTANT:  When tires with speed ratings lower than those supplied to the customer as original equipment are fitted, the speed capability of the vehicle is limited to the maximum speed rating of the replacement tires.
