full throttle front wheel doesnt want to go in a straight line.

hey guys i know this is a common issue.. still i would like to know if you know any adjustments possible to make the front wheel more straight under full thorttle..

i have a base Panigale with the Termi's and april 25th my front sprocket wil be changed to 14t and i will receive the new mapping which they say give a lot more midrange and a little on top.

i weigh 70Kg/s and on full throttle i go al the way forward and 1-2 i am pretty sensitive with going to full throttle im not banging the power on.

but still the front end keeps going a little left-right-left-right..


any tips guys

i assume next week my bike will be even more sensitive to this.

only around 4th gear the bike stabilizes and then i lose the problem. but 1-2-3-4 it's like fighting to keep it straight... also offcourse it keeps going up in 3 and hovers above the ground in 4th..

no chance it could be rider input, unknowingly, on the handlebars?

I have the base as well with the same issue. Perhaps a stearing dampner upgrade and stiffened could stop the wobble?

not that i know of.. when on full throttle what do you do ? do you pull or push on the handlebars? i tried both but i don't seem to get the right way of keeping the pani straight..

1st i tried pulling both sides towards me to keep it straight but for me i would expect it to go up quicker.

2d i tried to push the handlebars away from me a little downwards... this seemed to help a bit..

but other than that i have no idea.

any suspension possibilities?

maybe you are right and the steering damper has to be more stiff..

nothing adjustable on the stock damper?

Don't play with your steering damper, just learn how to finesse the throttle and roll on gradually.

Once the wheel is in the air thats it, the pressure or the grip you have on the bars is what is causing the wobble.
That and the undulations in the road.

Other solution is go and drink a shit load of beer and fatten the fuck up so there is more weight over the front!

I understand, have you tried also stiffening up the rear suspension, and setting the sag front and rear - mine was squatting so much under hard acceleration it made the front feel light at very high speed.
