    Benelli 600i - Poor Handling

    Hi , I have got myself a pre owned 2017 Benelli 600i abs,which has clocked just about 5K kms. I ride mostly in the Hills and although the Tyre thread is good , I find the handling of the Bike very unsteady particularly when leaning hard as it has an uneasy wobble which is actually a little more on right hand bends. Change of Tyres , and replacement of Front fork oil were some suggestions that I received , but I would be happy if I could get some advice on it from experienced riders.
    Also please advise on correct tyre pressures to be maintained for a single rider weighing about 90kgs.
    Thanks in anticipation .

    Yes correct tyre pressure may help .
    I run 2.2 and 2.4 bar on my tre1130 k yours may be different.
    Good tyres and well set up suspension are key for the best handling on any bike .

    However I would be looking at checking wheel bearings and steering head bearings as well, just to eliminate them.

    The main thing you need to do is to get the suspension setup for your weight first.
    I'm not familiar with this models suspension settings but it must at least have preload on the rear shock to help get the correct sag level.
    Also the front forks may of been lowered or risen in the triple clamps by the previous owner.
    Again a suspension guru will help you with these issues .

    What Rick said, I’ve had the suspenders on my last 2 bikes set up professionally and it’s transformed them. £60, done in a couple of hours and you can tell the difference immediately.
    Get your tyre pressures spot on first though
