Could be tires (back or front) and could also be steering head bearings or bent frame/forks.

I Have a shimmy in front fork when I hit a bump, what do you think

Hi, Ed and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tires or improper front-rear tire combination.
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing end play.
9. Improperly vehicle alignment.
10. Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires are out-of-round or eccentric with the hub.
13. Rims and tires are out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft improperly tightened or assembled.

Handlebars shake at about 45 mph. Some cupping seen on edges of OEM tires. Could it be head bearings as well ?

Your describing a tire problem as these bikes are very hard on tires and if ridden hard can fail a new tire very quickly. If it has the orginal tires they are likly worn out as I'm on my third front tire since '05 and my 8th rear tire. I don't trust old tires as I've been in a number of tire related accidents. new tires are way cheaper than just stepping into an ambulance or walking in the door of an emergency room. I've been thereand done that and I'm still paying the bills since 04 to prove it. tires ( new ones) are cheap insureance to avoid accidents. I likeMetlzer and Michelin tires
the OE tires aren't even close to the quality of these aftermarket tires but they cost much more and last much longer also. Head bearings rust and can be damaged in accidents and in some cases are too loose or too tight. with the bike jacked up so the frount tire is of the ground turn the steering to see if it turns smoothly and doesn't (catch) in the middle. If it turns smoothly with no ( catch) also gab the forks at the bottom edge and pull front to back to feel any play other than turning side to side like it's supposed to. Anything other than smooth movement with little or no binding as misrouted cables and wiring can also cause troble. If smooth the tires are at fault and even and worn rear tire can be felt in the front most often at 25 MPH

Front end shakes

I have a 98 heritage springer. Took it to the dealer and said the front end shakes. Without looking at it, the shop manager asked how many miles I had. Just under 10k was the answer. He said "neck bearings, it's a known issue with springer front ends that the neck bearings go after 10k miles." Taking his word for it, I agreed to have the work done. Got the bike back, no change. He said, well it needs a new front tire then. Changed the tire, again, no change. Took it to another dealer. Explained my tale of woe and the manager actually got on it and rode it. Agreeing there was something wrong, they took it in, jacked it up and actually looked at it. Turned out the rim was bent. So after all the BS at the first shop, it turns out they replaced the neck bearings and installed a new front tire on A BENT RIM! Start with the simple stuff first. Check the front wheel balance and rim straightness before diving into bearings.

I was woondering how to fix the 30 mph wobble on my '83 honda goldwing gl1100, i was told it was caused by low fork pressure .well this time it happened fork pressure was fine. for those of u not familiar...

I don't now how to fix it, I'm not a Gold Wing owner.

If I had to guess, is say you have a tire or front wheel balance problem. Please get it fixed by a professional before you hurt yourself and/or others. If it costs a hundred bucks or more, you are worth the investment

I would recommend getting the front tire balanced. Get the front wheel off of the ground and spin it to see how "out of round" it is.I know the tires on these are DOT approved, but they are not a comfortable ride at highway speeds. Head shake is usually caused when the front end gets light. (My Husaberg does it bad at 90mph) You can play a little with the suspension, or even move the forks up a little in the triple clamps, or the enevitable, get a stabilizer.

Too much shaking of my eyes/ helmet at high speed

Get yourself a Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki. This will take care of the Harley shake, that is what Harleys do.

Violent shake while cornering at lower speeds

hello and welcome
a couple of things that need to be inspected. the steering head bearings. with the bike supported you can check for free play with the steering stem and its holdings.
another is the rear tire. seems funny but vibrations and handleing i have seen do transfer from the rear at times. and if the tire may be out of balance it can throw the front tire wear off as well.
and another of course is the fork freeplay. as you r the dealerships should have inspected is the fork bushings. they have a teflon coating and if they wear down they can develop a clearance that results in bad front end handleing and tire wear. between any of those items you should be able to find the culprit. thank you.

Steering shakes very bad,from 55mph down to 20mph. slowing down

Yes the leak is causing uneven pressure on the front of the bike! The pressure in the left fork is greater then the right fork and will cause shaking of the front end!
Replacing seals and oil to the right fork will fix the shaking!
Hope this helps!
