Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

i think it was over tightened by someone regreasing it which wore it out alot and there was a bit of rust between the bearings and carrier. notches where there but barely noticeable ans a clunk only arrived when i but the new tyres on (gone now) i genuinely changed it mostly because i was bored and got the idea it was buggered but i could have had more miles out it before it became a probem (and didn't know about the F@CKING lips). but as i said if you check it you have the bonus of checking 80% of the front end, although it an be alot of faffing around for very little result

Well, I still haven't solved this....

I checked the bar end weights, and they're fine.  Today, I swapped my front wheel and axle for Jerryfudds (thanks Dan!), and the problem still existed. So now I know it's not the front wheel.

I've narrowed it down too. It will only wobble between 43mph and 38mph, when decelerating.

Odd eh?????

Just a thought. Is it possible that any of the bolts holding the removable chassis tube are loose - or at least not fully torqued up ?

Well my attentions will now focus towards the rear end, so I'll start there - thanks.
