Your statement makes it sound like the 1300 inherently wobbles.
And that we all know about it.
Once the steering neck bearings start to wear out, yes they do wobble! I've fixed a few by installing 1800 neck bearings. Have 2 scheduled to fix next week. If it hasn't happened to your's yet, it will. It'll start with a decel wobble at about 40-45mph then gets worse.
That's the first I heard of a systemic problem in the 1300 handling. I've heard of the goldwing wobble, but I haven't heard that the 1300s generally wobble.
So what are we talking about? Numbers matter, 5%? less then 1/2%? Has there been a poll?
Is it safe to say (and in fact yours is the second post inferring) that all 1300s will eventually wobble?
If true. That sucks.
Well count me as one of the people who didn't know that. My 1800 currently decel wobbles, after putting on an elite3 on the front.
But that's not an inherent problem to the 1800.
