Hi i have a 02 426 and its got a real bad tankslap,it happens on any surface and i can feel it from 2nd gear up even when im not pinning it!!!
I have replaced the linkage/shock/swingarm bearings as they needed doing,but it still wobbles enough that im just waiting for it to throw me off,which is a bit disconcerting.
I'm pretty new to offroading and any help would be appreciated :thumbsup:

Maybe check the preload on your steering stem, might be to loose causing excessive play :thumbsup:
