well, fourth trip to the HD dealer today. they are going to replace the master cylinder (front break was junk after being tweeked twice) replace voltage regulator (recall) and try and fix the front wheel problem.

I was reading from another post concerning wobble, don't know your situation, (not enough detail), but if wobble is from rolling off throttle without using break, it could be either loose spokes in rear wheel or factory Dunlop tires.

Each case was to replace the tires and problem resolved.

Yes, it was decel. but instantly it got so bad that the whole entire bike was fishingtailing back and forth going down the road. the front spokes were tweeked twice, with a total of 16 weights on the front wheel...lol. Not acceptable for a brand new bike. it is in the shop now, picking it up tomorrow....we'll see what they did with that. and they were going to replace the master cylinder too....hope it is like "new"

Heritage spoke undate!

well, after over a year of repeated trips to Harley service (...7?) I FINALLY got a new front tire. picked it up yesterday, seems to ride just fine! why did they take so long to replace the tire???? Maybe wanted to shut me up once they realized i wasn't going away quietly....

Glad I found this thread. I have the same problem with mine. I thought the tire was not balanced to I took the weights off and added dyna beads. Still wobbles. Seems like the fix is new tires.

2012 Heritage spoke issue

Just dropped my 12 Heritage off at the dealer...again, for the 7th time to address the wobble issue. This "wobble" began while riding to my 1000 mi check up at the dealer. After a handful of attempts to tighten spokes on the front wheel, Harley finally replaced the front tire (2013) Fast forward 4000mi. Guess what??? Yup, it happened again. Bike became wobbly and fishy at 70mph on the highway. I throttled back and it got worse. It is at the dealer now and they are telling me that it is the rear wheel this time. AND, this is not covered by the warranty (2 year expired in June) hmmm.

Maybe a phone call to someone at Harley to have them explain how something that has been wrong for 2 years is now all the sudden "out of warranty".
