my '05 883l does the same thing. i checked the bearings during the tire change a month back, and did not find loose bearings, and did put the bike back together unchanged. it's really not a problem for me if i have one hand on the bars.
i do plan to finish out the season, and adjust the bearings over winter..
it is a bit scary to let go of those bars at 40mph, thats for sure, but i've decided to leave it for now..and no, the dealer wont be making any adjustments to my steering or suspension systems.....ever
I didnt buy a Sportster because I wanted a Harley,
