Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide
My FXDWG wobbles and is an unstable ride over 70-75mph. The bike wants to also wobble on corners. The corner speed that I am running seems to be the same as the rest of my buddies on their bikes but they donthave the same experience as I do. Is there somehting I can do to do away with the wobble? Also if I am riding someone on the back of ,my bike the issue seems to be magnified. If they move at all the bike seems to go where it wants.
I have taken the factory tires and rims off the bike and increased the rear tire from a 16" wheel to an 18". Is there some kind of stabalizer that would coorect the problem?
With a taller tire in the rear you have changed the rake in the front. Also could be neck bearings/fall away adjustment,rim trueness or tire balancing

I was reading about a fix for this in IronWorks magazine just recently. I thinking January or February issue. If I remember right I think they actually said it is a kit with a stabilizer. I'll see if I can find the right one and follow up. they post the past issues on their website but I think you have to subscribe to the magazine to access the website. I love the magazine!! I have gotten lots of ideas and helpful information for my old shovelhead.
