If your steering is NOT falling to one side, your bearings are WAY too tight. I would look for a new mechanic.
FWIW, retorquing to steering bearings is on the scheduled maintenance.

|MaxMan56||Please excuse me if I missed the (Final) Resolution to this issue. But I've not seen ANY mention to what the bottom line to My Final Fix was to this. My Honda mechanic asked me to put my X up on my lift, and hold onto my grips and lift and push down to check for ANY kind of play against the Steering Stem. Then, put the tire strait and let go of the grips. If the Steering fell to one side or the other, and did not stay right where you released them, you had one of 3 problems that would cause this 30 to 45 mph heavy vibration. 1) A worn Steering Stem Bearing. 2) To many Bottom-Outs against to the Tripple Tree causing flat spots on the Steering Stem Ball Bearings, to need replacement necessary. And 3) (which mine was) A simple Locking Nut Adjustment.|

I know this is old, but i have this exact issue and it's been bugging the crap out of me for a year now!
Just to verify, how to i make sure i have the 1800 suspension? i got it used so no idea what the previous guy may have done

Ordered the Progressive 412 shocks, should get them 8-2 UPS.
The spring was buzzing inside the sock, changed the bushings to the green ones for the 1800 and the noise improved a bit but still there.
Looking forward to not having to put up with that and the ride improving.

Got tired of the noise coming from the right Shock, i changed the bushings to the green ones and it still made the noise although not as bad.
Ordered the Progressive 412's, should get them 8-2-17. Looking forward to that annoying noise being gone and a better ride.

Steve its no big deal, Metzlers have been so cheap and work well for me.... Hans I have noticed it on all sets of Metzlers and could never really tell the difference in either tire. The 880 or the 888. Still the same mileage and noise. I have about 14 on them now.
On another note, now I got to go put the bike on a stand and see what mine sounds like.............

|heffly||Hey, lets dont be knocking the Metzlers.......lol. I have ridden them for 63000 miles so far, they make a humming noise at slower speeds, more so as they age, less with lower tire pressure. But to me its a hum, a noise not so much a vibration I feel, as the sipes edge out I think it is more pronounced. Cupping makes it louder.......got a new set waiting to go on......soon.|
