Any help from you guys would be greatly appreciated , I have searched on here and nothing has come up . I'm trying to keep from having to put a damper on but if that is what it takes so be it .

If this is happening while street riding then raise the front tire pressure to about 18 pounds.
Balance the wheels. On the front, take off the tire and stick about 2.5 ozs of stick on wheel weights under the rim strip and hammer them down to fit in the rim contour and cover them with duct tape. Put the tire on and go ride.
Put on a Dunlop 606 or something similar on the front. In the summer I use them front and rear.
I'm still using the stock front springs and I weigh about 250.
