Rivale : "high speed" front wheel wobble.

I noticed this a few times at speeds that are considered high for the rivale (~110-120mph)

Has anyone installed a steering damper or is it suspension adjustment?, I tried to soften the suspension a little to see whether it would improve, i havent noticed a difference . i havent messed with the preload as of yet

Tire is not worn, bike is practically still new (got about 1100miles so far)

In my case (brutale) it calmed down when I increased the front rebound damping. I run it almost at the max now. Too soft compression at the back might give you problems too. Just trying to keep the front wheel firmly in contact with the ground. I know - wrong bike

I had a high speed wobble and it was due to a broken steel belt in the tire.

Is this under high acceleration or just a consistent high speed?

I have it on my Brutale, but this is only on full throttle high rev above 200 kph.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I feel it at times if my grip on the bars is too tight. Relax your arms and see if it goes away.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
