My 98 R1100RT don't like to turn..?
My R 1100 RT just seems to like to go straight and push through corners. My old 85 K100RT was quick and nimble in the corners. I just had to 'think' about going around a bend and the bike just went. The R1100 on the other hand seems to require quite a bit of physical input to make it go around the corners. Is the 'R' bike just that much more of a pig than the old 'K' bike? The K bike would be very neutral in a corner, once I set the line, it would stay on that line unless I changed it. the R bike seems to always want to straighten its self out, unless I keep constant pressure on the bars. :scratch
I can admit to my stupidity..
[QUOTE=happy wanderer;872042]I sometimes have that problem in the spring when I am over anxious to ride and forget to check my pressures. This year I did it again. You know... "dang this bike is harder to push around. I need to get in shape!"
Following day I finally check the tires to find 30 in the front and 31 in the back. Uh huh....[/QUOTE]
Tire pressure was the problem. 23psi front and rear! Increased it to 41 and 45, seems to be right now. (I always ride two up). Thanks!
