Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHR-FLHRI Road king
I have a 2000 Road King. The front tire wobbles if I let go of the grips and it also floats a bit during curves. Any ideas, and is this a do-it-yourself fix?
First thing to do is check front and rear tyre pressures. Next check for un-even wear of front tyre. Then check steering head bearings for correct tightness. Also check for bent front brake disks as one side bent can cause this. Check for worn wheel bearings also. Check engine mount rubbers as these can cause floating on bends if worn of loose. Basically check all chassis related items fully.

My 2000 king had a wobble problem after getting lower chrome tubes added on. And I noticed it the first time at high speeds. So, I went back to the mechanic and he and I both missed the problem. But, the counter lady was there and seen one of the weights missing on the front tire. So, I got it balanced and all is great now even at high speeds.

With your floating through curves, if your 2000 roadking is the same as mine, check the air pressure in your air suspension. If it is to low it will feel like it is bouncing around corners and can be very un-nerving
