You should try RideOn. It got rid of a lot of my high speed wobble with the Austone. That was after dyna beads didn't do it, followed by a computer balance that didn't do it.
If yours is a deceleration wobble, I'd be looking elsewhere, like drive train. So how does it shake?

the only problem is the decel . wobble, hands free, from 60/55 on down.

I had high hopes on the all balls because so many others had said it cured their wobble.

maybe I misunderstood what it was they were talking about.

Your steering head is loose and needs to be tightened. Sounds as if you're not really technically inclined, I'd suggest having a friend do it or take it to a shop.

In that direction, as Fly said, check everything else besides the DS tire - I've not heard of this kind of wobble cause by a rear tire so far. Jack her up and pull forward hard on the front wheel.
If you have play, you found your problem, and it's still a good idea to snug the steering head bearings while it's on the jack.

What front tire are you using, I have heard of several instances when the tire was the cause of the wobble?

All Balls and Fork Brace - no wobble

Post  genedjr on Wed Nov 13, 2013 10:13 pm

I was so excited when I picked up my brand spanking new wing. With the costs and other factors I was able to get a pretty good deal in Denver, so off I went. On the way home, being a no-hands kinda guy, I was overjoyed that I could drop my hands and ride fairly well down I25.

For a few weeks no-hands for various reasons was fine. But fairly rapidly that changed. Within 3 months there was no way to take my hands off the bars even for a second without having such severe wobble that I feared a crash. Total tank slap. Crying or Very sad 

After reading a lot, I decided to go with all-balls AND the Kuryakyn fork brace. OMG!!! what a difference. While I still have slight issues at very low speeds, but the decal wobble is gone. And no wobble at any constant speed (like 35mph!).

Now I can ride no-hands as I did on the Harley, which was pretty much anytime I was on any highway. Love it.

I had a wobble with my bike 40 mph on down, it got so bad I couldn't take my hands off the controls for fear of going down. It got worse as time went by till I changed my front tire. All wobble gone from my bike and the Battlax BT45(rear tire) runs true and smooth up front, feels like a whole new bike now. The Avon I had lasted a long time but the wobble just got so bad I can't recommend it for the front of bikes.
