    hey guys, been lurking on this forum for a while now. Recently made a trade for this 97 m2 cyclone and ill have to say im pretty impressed so far. She was pretty filthy and needed a good cleaning and a few other things. Ridden it a few times without major concern, just handles funny in the front. Possibly the tire or adjustments on the rebound/dampening? any ways...here it is.

    i suppose its hard to explain but i keep reading how the bike is suppose to be great in the corners but this one is not even close, just feels unstable and the tire wants to follow every seam in the road, tire pressure is set correct and im not sure how to adjust the settings in the forks yet.

    does it seem to sort of "chopper flop" like it has to be forced to turn and then it turns to much and just kinda wonders through the corners. or just feel all out loose.? if its more like the first could be steering head bearings, the second tires or suspension i would bet.

    oh and nice M2 btw my first buell was an M2

    Nice Tubber..... Matt try tightening the top tree the tubbers like when they're tigher than normal. And as crazy as it sounds the rear tire looks to flattened out and it will make the front fall into the turns.
