Recently in AIM a customer wrote in and explained he’d been experiencing a wobble in the steering when holding onto the bars lightly.It happened when slowing down or coasting to a stop at approx. 38-42 mph. He took the bike in for servie and the Harley tech tightened and reset the preload on the steering bearing and greased it heavily. The customer noted “this seems to help somewhat, but the wobble gets worse as I put more miles on the bike”. When the customer returned with the same complaint the Harley service tech took the bike for a long ride and verified the complaint. Then the tech told the customer nothiing is wrong and it’s just an undesirable characteristic of that bike and the customer will have to live with it. The tech also mentioned it could be caused by the Tour Pak on the back of the bike. The customer removed the Tour Pak and got the same results. If this sounds familiar, Chris M – the “AIM expert” commented: see next posting!
