I had the same problem on my 2004 after I installed the All Balls. Loosened them up a bit and every returned to normal. I found the tapered bearings don't need as much torque as the OEM's

That’s good to know. I’ll try that first.

I’ve the bike on the center stand now and I find no side play on the swing-arm. Maybe I can find a guy here in Houston that is good at these 1200’s and let them inspect it.

I got rid of my alluminum wings and picked up a Goldwing. Here to be a Light.

The only manual I have is the Haynes I believe.
