ENERGY FLOW METHOD FOR THE STUDY OF MOTORCYCLE WOBBLE MODE

A concept of the energy flow is introduced in order to study the motorcycle wobble mode. The activation mechanism of the wobble oscillation is made clear in the framework of the energy flow concept. It is found that the wobble mode is activated mainly by the yaw rate and roll rate motion and is suppressed by the lateral acceleration and the force of the front tire. A designing guide to stabilize the wobble mode is mentioned. (Author/TRRL)
