Still searching for the cure to my 50-40 MPH decel wobble with no hands on the bars so I bought a HF balance stand. Wheels static balanced and the same thing, bike feels the same too. Same vibes, nothing different. I own it now so I guess I'll use it but it seems again to make no difference at all.

Possibly the rear end causing the problem?

My 2003 ZZR1200 did the same thing and I actually returned to the dealership before I got it home the day it was delivered. They said, accorcing to Kawasaki, keep your hands on the bars. I owned another a few years later and same thing. 2200 mile bike that time.

Is it a problem? Well, it bugs me and my other street bikes don't do it. I'm betting it is the ball bearing steering head. I'll be going to tapered rollers next. I'll measure up the rear wheel alignment too, good idea.

New 2013 Ninja 300 with 1300 miles.

I would imagine that any decel wobble from the beads would eventually go away, as they are supposed to cause the tire to wear evenly.

has anyone experiened otherwise? Also, looking into using Ride-on for a dualsport project bike. Any thoughts or opinions.
