  1. Question Shaking in the front?

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Starting last summer, I noticed a slight wobble in the steering/handlebars at 40-50 mph, especially on de-accel. It really hasn't been a problem because it was so subtle and went away after 50 mph. The wobble is getting steadily worse... Its bad enough now that I am afraid to take my hands off...

It's not to bad...

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***

  7. First impressions - installed the Dyna Beads today
