Question about 1987 Honda GL 1200 Aspencade Gold Wing
I have a 87 honda goldwing and when letting go of handlebars the front end shakes violently, never used to do that

Hi, Anonymous 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. Loose spokes.
15. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
16. Worn engine stabilizer links.
17. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
18. Swing arm pivot shaft improperly tightened or assembled.

The only common problem [that dealers deny] is front end wobble at slow speeds. Different reports peg it at between 32 and 42 mph - or somewhat near that.
You'll find lots of solutions posted on line.
Loading front tire to 41 psi got rid of most of it for me.
Blown seals suggests you're using your wing for a trail bike or you have some real problems. There could have been an event which caused it once, but if you fixed it, shouldn't repeat.

SOURCE: i was woondering how to
I hope that i can give you some ideas. First, check the front tire for wear and balance. Check the steering head bearings. Check believe it or not, the frame for any cracks or weak points. Check the rear suspension including the swing arm. Check also the oil level in the front forks, they have to be equal amounts in each fork. If this means to have the seals changed and refilled with proper oil then have it done. If you have a history of the machine then it might help. And yes, i know what a wobble will do,
