It’s the AT, she doesn’t care for some tires, who knows why. I did notice that in my case the shake went away as the tire worn down.Hello, I drive a Africa Twin '16 DCT with tyres Metzeler Tourance Next. Me too are experiencing handlebar shake (or wobble), almost in any condition. Not so strong, but pretty annoying, though holding the handlebars very lightly. At speeding the vibrations even affect my vision. Problem that was almost unknown with the previous tyres: Pirelli Skorpion Trail II, no matter how worn they were or the speed. Tyres are balanced and the shake is far more light when driving without the topbox, but still present. Had exactly the same problem with my previous "bike", Honda Integra, that I called "almost bike" ;-) With the Integra I used four different types of tyres and it didn't shake only with one of them.
With that experience and reading around in forums, Italians also, I came to this conclusion: these bikes have an imbalance somewhere, imbalance that is lessened or totally eliminated with the right tyre. That is because if the bike doesn't have an imbalance, it shouldn't shake or wobble, no matter the tyres (of course tyres not defective and well balanced). Am I too simplistic?
And that my new Dunlop mission didn’t shake at all...
