what do you mean by wobble? Like the bike falls more mid corner? Rear end moves? Front end tuck?

Lift the front of the bike, grab the lower part of the forks and move forward/backward. If they are loose and move you may need to adjust the castlated nut under the triple stem nut; or check the bearing.

If you roll more in the corner the weight distributes to the rear and off the front; vibrations will be lessened.

If your tire is showing 'chopping' or 'feathering' you may have one fork low on fluid or the dampening properties are not well.

Too much weight on the bars could cause it to feel wierd when the suspension moves and the extra weight upsets the front a little. Try relaxing on the bars and holding on with ur legs and holding up self up with abs/back.

always put weight on the rear tire.... I go through two rears to a front, about 4k per rear and 9k per front... and I normally ride casual round and about; no burn outs, no hard accels.

If it only happens on two corners, try to figure out what you are doing differently on those corners... leaning further, hard braking before corner, extenuated time in a lean, etc... something that leads to WHY it happens... if nothing comes to mind, take the same corner high or lower and see if its the corner itself.

If it's only two specific corners, try different lines, or even stop and walk the road a bit in the areas that are giving you the wobble.

The other thing is relax... let the bike move around under you a bit and it will do the work for you. Practice taking your hand off the bar or opening your fingers in mid turn, to see if you are hanging on too hard. Elbows bent, support with your outside knee and stomach.

Not including race track speeds (altho if you are comfortable you can do it then also), you should be able to ride and turn one handed easily. The bars are for control input, NOT for hanging on to for dear life.

If you are gripping too hard and keeping your arms stiff, then every bounce the bike makes puts unneeded input into the bars and the chassis.

Again, RELAX... ride with the of your feet on the pegs, elbows bent, hands on the bars relaxed. Use your stomach and thighs to support the upper body, not the arms.

You use a gentle push on the inside bar to initiate the turn, then relax and let it carve. A light throttle opening thru the turn, don't coast.

its because of that big fat you got there, porky. drop a couple of tons and you wont have that problem.

First 1/2 of corner (as you decelerate/brake to midpoint of apex) is normally front suspension problem.

Second 1/2 of corner (as you beign to accelerate out of apex) is normally rear suspension problem.

Which part of corner do you think it is?
