    I have spent hundreds of dollars trying to get rid of a wobble in my 03 Heritage Springer. I've tried all the tricks, put it in the dealer for two weeks, and to no avail. Two weeks ago I replaced the stock handlebars with some 1 1/4 Chubby Beach bars and ran the wires inside. Crazy thing, the wobbles gone. Now that's something I didn't expect. I have put 1700 miles on it since then and still no wobble. Any body else have a crazy solution to a problem like this?

    Rerouting wiring and cables CAN affect the wobble, as they are part of the friction that absorbs the side by side vibration by dampening it before it starts. Other items that affect it is tread depth (you lose vibes by the tread pattern contact patch and your arms and hands. Some bars also "detune" the wobble by virtue of the your steerer tube as well as the bearings.
