I do not have any front end wobble on my 1800 either and I definitely would not spend that kind of money to not fix a problem that doesn't exist. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!!

Thanks SETHAN12. However....I never said I was going to buy it. Just looking for other opinions on how this thing would work if it should happen. I like having a plan 'B'....just in case.

Well, I like the design & workmanship, but...

many folks have fixed their 'wobbles' with hard work & perserverance...some with just a new tire, if I couldn't summon the 'hutzpa' to fix the cause of the wobble, I would most likely ignore that pretty little cylinder too. So when it locks up or siezes from neglect, just when I need to turn, I'm basically toast...right?

So, while I like it a lot, I think I would have to pass. But that's just me...:waving:

Aren't you supposed to hire a consultant to find out why it isn't broken?

Oh.....but wait.....there's more.....that don't count installation (unless you do it yourself). Guess you could send the bill to Honda, it's their screw up, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for them to pay.

I think I'll make my own out of a screen door closer. It will come with a slide catch offering multiple adjusting positions and sell it for $19.95.

I've had the wobble on my 1800. It started not long after I had a set of Metzler ME880's installed. I tried to fix it by having a set of All Balls Bearings installed. They helped quite a bit but the wobble was still there.

I had thought about installing a steering damper like the one that came on my 1976 MotoGuzzi 850 but couldn't find one at the time. I finally fixed the wobble by getting rid of the Metzler ME880 rear tire.

The steering damper on the Moto Guzzi lasted for the entire time I had the bike, 196K+ miles.

I have always wondered why Honda did not install some sort of dampening on the wing.

edited to correct spelling
