    ok, to clear things up. i do all my own work. i know what i am doing. have been to vtx tech sessions and worked on other bikes. just been trying to find this issue and cant trace it down. just started happening. gonna check swingarm bushings next. but, it seems to be coming from the front! just hoping someone was able to clear up the same problem.

    Thanks for trying guys. Was a shot in the dark. I know it could be a lot of things. Was just throwing it out there trying to see if someone else had a direction I haven’t thought of!!

    Break the rear tire beads and spin the tire on the wheel 8"-10", and air it up again. I'm Darkside on both bikes (1800/1300)... and have installed a few on other bikes.
    How is the rear balanced? I've been happy with Ride-On balancing liquid. I use the stuff made for ATVs. 32oz costs as much as 8oz of Motorcycle stuff.
