Hmm, had a slight low speed low side and now I have front end wobble. Bike slid into the wall wheels first (about 10mph). Ex: traveling 40 mph, i let off the throttle, take hands off bar and I have a significate front end wobble. Front rim is straight and balanced. loosened triple clams and wheel (removed) to release any twist in the forks.

Any suggestions??

Check your steering head bearings. My .005 cents, money's a bit tight.

have somebody sit on the bike while get in front and move the tire around. there shouldn't be any space/movement bw the rim and the forks.

tire pressure is fine, no movement fore/aft movement in the head stock bearnings. they dont feel tight as they move freely. this happened immediatly after my low side. also, the bike tracks straight when i take my hands off the bars.

Oh, I should also mention that it has Honda's HESD stearing damper. Funny thing as it's not working so (hence the front end shake) I am wondering if it's causing the problem. I dont know anything about the HESD but I have the shop manual on the way. When it arrives I will see if I can remove it and still ride the bike.

Thanks for the suggestions peepz!

Make sure your brake rotor didn't bend in the spill. Just my .02
