Hi All,

Just bought a 2012 CB1000R - took it out for a quick spin last night and it rides well. Looking forward to getting stuck in with some mods.

The only thing I noticed is that the front end feels very light and when tipping it into bends it feels like the front just wants to tuck.

It does need a new front tyre so that will be getting done - I am hoping that is the cause.

Anything else it could be? Just checking if there’s anything specific on these bikes.

thanks,

Alex

Try the new tire first before digging too deep. Head bearings being loose have been a problem for a few folks, but the symptoms are different. A worn tire can definitely cause the bike to feel as you describe.

Congrats on the new bike!

Yeah the stock front is pretty good. Tyres and pressures first. Check bearings. Also check suspension settings. Set them back to standard.
