Question about 2004 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
Front wheel wobble or shaking on acceleration/deceleration can be, A tyre not sitting on its wheel correctly, front brake binding (more noticable on a single front disc, head race worn or needs adjusting,
What is often overlooked is the back of any motorcycle as the swinging arm will transmit front wheel shake due to a worn or badly adjusted swinging arm.
The front wheel spindle and or bearings may need to be looked at but on bikes with less than 20,000 miles this will normally be adjustments rather than replacements
It needs to be noted than VN1500 nomads normaly have a speed wobble around 30 to 45 MPH and this is a known issue that finds its roots on the tyre itself and they need to be deflated and re seated after 200 miles, handy if you are trying to think what it is but it is no real issue and an easy fix.

When you go to lock it or unlock the steering give the bars a little wiggle while turning the key. Somtime the rod that goes into the hole gets gummed up. As for the front end wobble I would take a look at the wheel to see if it has gotten bent or if you have lost a wheel weight. Also check the wheel bearings buy getting the front wheel off the ground and hold the front end from moving and grab the top and bottom of the wheel and see if there is any side to side rocking movment. If there is stop riding the bike and get them replaced.
