Hi all

Recently acquired a 750WW which has shown the following problem.When braking for genral traffic kind conditions the front end shudders. When braking hard there is no shudder. I have checked the neck bearings and wheel bearings whihc are both good. rotors seem fine i have checked them.
All nuts an bolts are tight. i am beginning to suspect the steering damper( standard one still fitted) ,could it be the steering damper ?any other ideas?

cheers

Ahhh never thought of that , bike has michelin sport (race soft) tyres on. i estimate the front tyre to have about 1000 miles on it.Tyre does seem to be very shiny in the middle,not used much on the edges. will check it out ,thanks
