Frount end wobble on my 1992 kawasaki voyager

So many differnt things can cause this.
worn tyre front
bent wheel
bent discs
worn wheel bearings
worn or unlubricated head bearings.
leaking fork seals'lack of fork oil

the problem can also be caused from the rear of the bike, tyre, bearings, swing arm. misaligned wheels, bent frame etc.

If this has just started happening, tyres and bearings most common.
If there has been no crash involved a lot of the possibility are already excluded

I recently put new forks on my 2002 R1 after it had been laid over. The frame is strait as well as the new forks but the front tire is hitting the headers.

Then the frame neck is bent or the upper and lower triple clamps are bent/twisted downward. You have more things bent than you realize.

How size is measured? So what does “different frame size” actually mean? And what does that frame size number, 13” or 25” or whatever, mean?

The frame size number comes from the length of the seat tube. The seat tube is that nearly vertical tube of the three big tubes that make up the "main triangle" of the bike frame. The seat tube has the bike's saddle attached at the top, and has the pedals and crank arms attached at the bottom. A short seat tube will make the pedals closer to the saddle; a long seat tube will make the pedals further away. The frame size number is the length from the center of the crank arm spindle (the axle that holds the two crank arms together) up to the top of the seat tube (where the saddle and seatpost are attached). On some bikes this is measured in inches, on others in centimeters.

But that's not the only dimension that changes for different frame sizes. As bicycle frames get taller, they also get longer. That means the distance from the saddle to the handlebars gets longer. This makes sense, since tall people don't just have longer legs than short people. They usually also have longer arms, a longer torso, and so on. So the bike frame also needs to get longer in every direction for a taller rider, not just longer from pedal to saddle. The top tube gets longer, which pushes the handlebars further away from the saddle. The head tube (the frame part that the fork attaches to) gets taller, so the handlebars will be higher up. All of these dimensions and more are fine tuned in every frame size, so the right size frame for a person's height fits well everywhere, not just in the saddle.

How to replace swing arm bearings on 1970 sportster

Get the bike up off the ground and make sure it's secure. Remove the rear wheel and the rear shocks. Look for anything else that may be attached to the swing arm such a brake rod return springs etc.

Once you have everthing off the swing arm, take the pivot bolt out and the swing arm with the bearings slides off the frame. Remvove the screw and lockwasher, bearing lockwasher, the right bearing locknut, and the bearing outer spacer. Using a punch, turn out the left bearing locknut from the fork hub and remove the spacer. From inside the fork, press or drive out the bearings and bearing spacers by applying pressure against the spacer. Press or drive out the bearing shields from fork inner side.

Hope this helps,

Good Luck

What is the difference in the degrees of rake on factory trees between full back and full forward.? is full forward back to factory stock rake?

Frame "rake" is determined by the angle of the neck section of the frame itself relative to the ground/earth. Triple trees are in front of the steering stem (or neck "axle/axis") does not define or affect the "rake" of the frame. Almost every other motorcycle manufacturer places the triple trees in front of the frame's neck axis, In 1980 H-D developed the "self-centering" type of triple trees, where the trees lay/fall behind the neck's axis. This type of front end design is very stable because the "weight" or mass of the assembly being behind the neck will "come back to center" while moving forward down the road.

Factory spec. and plans for honda shadow vt 1100 1989  to help me to measure parts to make sure my frame is straight and ok.THANK MYOU.

If the bike was wrecked cheking the frame is simple, look for any paint popping off, especially around the neck where the fork attaches, if the paint is popped the frame is bent, if not the frame is good.

Better start checking everything. depending on the severity of the wobble, it may just need something simple like a new tyre. But all of the following can cause a problem
Tyres worn

Head bearings\twisted forks
swing arm bushes

Pull to left even when just rolling, no damage that i can see

Bad, mismatched, improper tires, Wheel bearings, wheel bearing preload adjustment steering head bearings, steering head preload adjustment. misaligned wheels swing arm bushings or bearings, swing arm bearing preload, worn defective shock, bent frame, rims. forks. misaligned forks. fork stiction.
Prevention is in making all above are correct., a steering damper won't fix it, it will only hide the problem!!!
