    What will take the wobble out?

    I have a 2020 BMW K1600 B Grand America, this is the most unstable bike that have ever ridden my ~35 years of riding. I only have about 2700 miles on it (mostly due to that wobble) but I am due for an annual service. What is proven that can be done to make this bike more stable? I have bumped the air pressure, changed the windshield and often use the one plus lugggage setting.

    I can't help you as I have a GT. There is a lot of discussion on this topic over at the K1600 Forums!

    It should be under warranty.
    What does your dealer say?
    “Fate whispers to the warrior, 'You cannot withstand the storm.'
    The warrior whispers back, 'I am the storm.'

    They say that it is any another big bike that it will be sensative to wind, vehicles, etc. I say, BS my Harley doesn’t float around.

    I'd get the BMW Regional rep involved if you feel that strongly.

    Design issue. Nothing will take the wobble out short of trading it in on a Harley or a Gold Wing. BMW will do nothing. Placing a 100 mph limiter on the bike was their answer.
