History
This is a friends bike. He stopping riding and long term loaned it to me while mine was down getting rebuilt. He hardtailed it himself and unknown to me it had a few issues. Long story short, I was riding it down a mountain pass and passed some slow moving cages that were riding they're brakes all the way down the hill and I ended up getting the Harley death wobble and went down hard at around 90mph. Since he only had liability insurance on the bike, I kinda inherited it and I'm now rebuilding it. Turns out the rear wheel bearings were both shot, the left belt tensioner had 1/2 inch play and the left brace (what would be the right shock if it was stock) was loose. So that's what caused the uncontrollable wobble.
