Looking for some answers: I have a 04' V2K and have been experiencing a front end wobble at around 80km/hr mostly noticeable on deceleration. I noticed after new rubber was installed on the front but I took the wheels in twice to check for balancing and came back ok. I've checked the stem bearings and they are tight also.......I'm at a loss, does anyone else experience this or have they and know what the problem is or what to check for because the dealer of course has no clue??

mine only does this when I have full luggage and take my hands of the bar. Have to grab the bar within 2-3 secs or it develops into a tankslapper.
Experiment with tire pressure, maybe it'll help.
As you are sitting on the bike make sure the left fork cinch bolts are tight then loosen the right cinch bolts then bounce the forks down 5 times then tighten the right cinch bolts if it still have the same condition re-balance the front wheel.
tighten the steering head bearings [ 12 lbs. ft ]
Bare and Bob you would think that's the ticket.......I've done both and no go.....I'm at a loss
Kevin if you did not have the issue before the new front tire more likely than not it is out of round. I have seen many out of round.
Bare I'm kind if thinking that too.....it's a new tire and had them rebalance and check if it was defective but the slightest problem could cause this I guess. It's more annoying than anything lol thanks Guys!
Some of the '04 models had bad brakediscs. Kawasaki replaced them back then. I can imagine bad/warped discs could have this effect.
just a thought maybe try some Green Tire Slime, its cheap and always smooths things out when there is a balancing problem and you will never get a flat again. I run it in all 3 of my bikes and love the effects.
I might just try that! Thanks Brian.
