Question Majesty 400 ride stability?

Hello friends, anyone here was riding the majesty before? i have get used to my skywave ride characteristics, yesterday i switched my bike with my friend's bike on the way home, it was a majesty 400, i felt that the bike is wobbling when the tire hit or ride over a crack on the asphalt, even if it was just not even or not flat spot on the road the bike was wobbling, i then stopped to check the forks and the bearings but every thing was okay, i asked him and he said that he noticed this from the first day he purchased the bike but he got used to it since then. Anyone noticed this? i wonder if it was normal due to lack of design, otherwise the bike was beautiful, fast and very torquey.

Hussein, you might check with the good folks on our sister website Majesty USA (formed around the same times as BUSA). They would be able to tell you for sure if those characteristics are normal or not.

I would think there is something wrong with your friends bike. I ride both a 650 Exec and a 400 Majesty. The Majesty is rock solid.

It should be, but his bike wasn't, it felt "too light" if i want to be more accurate to describe the feel. What made me think to post this is i found nothing wrong when i checked it at the side of the road.
I will post it in Majesty forum, but i know i will get the same answer as yours lol.

Part of the issue may be the design of how the front end attaches to the frame. It could stand to be more like a conventional motorbike.

I have found that a few extra pounds of air in the tires beyond the recommendation is necessary to avoid the symptoms as described. Try upping the air a bit and see if this helps.
