Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum. I wanted to know if anyone else gets a descently bad wobble at 80mph and up. I have cobra tires, good tread, had them checked and balanced the mechanic said he couldn't find a reason that I would have a wobble, I hit 80mph and my handlebars want to start shaking. Is this normal for a Harley? Under 80 I have no issues at all.

Spoke rims or cast?

Is the front end stock?

A "wobble" indicates loose fork neck bearings. The mechanic should know the symptom.
A "weave" indicates tight neck bearings.
The fork fall away test will identify loose and tight fork neck bearings.

It's spoke, and that's where you jack it up and tilt the handlebars and there should be some resistance as they fall right?

Jack up bike, have front straight, then measure the amount of distance that you have to push on the tire each way until it turns by itself.
