I've noticed a wobble in the front end while decelerating under 30mph and during slow speed turns. Everything I've checked is tight. But the tire is worn a little wierd. Would the tire be the likely culprit?

Hey there,

The more mine cupped, the greater the wobble. New tires will be here tomorrow.

Yes...You need a new tire. Probably dipped out. Especially at the edges is why you notice it in turns. If you arn't carefull it could get bad enough to cause the bars to shake....

That's not unusual for you Taffy, you are far beyond experience.... in fact, I think you might be in the vaporous arena of 'med effect'....

From my understanding the front end wobble is common on the wings. I haven't seen a post to fix it on here yet.

I've noticed thata new front tire will solve the problem for a while, but be prepared, it can return at anytime. Personally I NEVER let go of the grips with both hands at the same time! (When you let go you begin to slow down -the verything that causes the wobble). If you need to zip your jacket do it before you get on or stop to do it.

When I first got my 84 Aspy, it had a front end wobble just as you described. It was really bad. Bad enough that I was almost scared of loosing control.

I found my front tire to be worn and cupped. I ordered a new set of tires (rear tire was fine but I wanted a matching set) and installed them.

No more front end wobble.

Its a well known issue. I get some too on my GL 1100. I have a .005 wheel side to side out of true. And a new tire and it does it.I let one go a bit to see how bad it could get. It definately flexes things a bit. From what I've read in Riding magazines. Its common on a lot of bikes. And concidered normal. The pros say dont take your hand off the handlebars , Ever.... Then it wont happen. Is all they ever come up with. If there is no mechanical issue.
