Was out Sunday riding,and had a nice stretch of straight road so I ran the Uly up on the bigend.About 120 indicated the bike started to get some bar wobble,it wasn't a tank slapper but I think it could have got to it.I had a light grip on the bars and rolled off slowly.When it indicated 115 it all stopped.I checked air pressure before the ride.Do you suppose I should check steering head bearing tightness or try some different front suspension settings?
Thanks

Both, and also consider that aerodynamic effects action upon you and your apparel may be the culprit. Also, what front tire and how many miles? Reports indicate that the OEM Dunlop tires can contribute to this phenomenon.

"... Reports indicate that the OEM Dunlop tires can contribute to this phenomenon. ..."

This topic was discussed last year in German motorbike magazines. Switching to another tire solved the problem.
