would get your bike on a stand and make sure its not some slop in the bearings. if the rear wheel feels nice and tight then i would think its prolly the aggressive knobbie or possibly a balance issue. I use 606s and dont see that problem, what tire you got on it? what pressure you using on street?

I Will Let You Know When I Get Home Tonight.We checked it out while on the lift and all the bearings were in good shape.Found a few loose spokes though (maybe 2) but everything looked good.Must be the tire, was told its the most aggressive DOT legal tire avalable.

Since the bearings and swingarm bushings seemed good, it could be the knob. pattern, or the rim could be a little warped.

Wouldn't hurt to get a little penetrant on the spoke nipples that need tightening, and get 'em socked down at some point.

If you just found a loose "spoke or 2" and just tightened those you could be out of true on your rear wheel. Would certainly cause the problems your getting.

Check in the tech section here on TT...good part about checking your tires for trueness in there.

spin the tire while off the ground and watch your rim to see if its moving side to side, this would be doing that if your out of true. Definitely need to get and KEEP them spokes tight. I check mine fairly often to make sure there not getting too loose. Prolly alot dont check them as often as they need to so heres a friendly reminder peeps , GO check them spokes now!!

No loose spokes should be found. Do not ride till you have re trued the rim/spokes. You can easily bend the rim if you don't.

Search for 'wheel truing" for guidance.

Next, you need to balance your wheels with lead weights. Go to your local motorcycle dealer to get advice, and weights.
