You may be dealing with a combination of things. First set your tire pressure to 35 PSI front and rear. Inspect your tire for uneven wear. Place your bike on the center stand and jack the front wheel just off of the ground. Now turn the handle bar from lock to lock and feel for bumps and look for centering of the bar . If the turning is not completely smooth replace the steering neck bearings with a one piece bearing kit from All Balls. I do not believe the there is a listing for your year, but I can tell you it is the same kit as a 1978 CX500 custom or deluxe.

On 98 caravan 2.4 it starts to wobble at 40up to 50 mph mostly when accelerating when speed reached smoths also smooths out after 50 mph alll new including valves. could bad wires cause this?


How old are the good tires? These speeds usually mean belt or balance problem with tires...If new tires, they need to be re-checked for balance...and not out of round...also check for bent wheel...due to chuckhole? Sometimes a bent steel wheel can be hammered straight...hope this helps.

Jack it up and shake the wheel if it wobbles then it's a bad wheel bearing, if it doesn't then your tire may need to be balanced.

Car runs very rough at stops, dies at times but restarts, higher speeds runs great ,smooth. At idle sounds like vaccum leak inside throttlebody also slight manifolds to eng. head air leak, engine shakes...


There is a TSB for the PCV hose. The elbows at both ends get holes in the underside that you can't see unless you remove them and look. This is a very, very common issue on the ZX2. You can get a new PCV hose with both elbows for about $30 from the Ford dealership. You only need to remove the air intake to gain access to the PCV hose to replace it.

Steering wheel shakes at high speed when brakes are applied


This is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped from heat and running out of true, the wobble of the warped rotors causes the wheel to shake when you apply the brakes, it is worse the higher the speed you apply them at. Have the front rotors machined flat again or just replace them.

It shakes as though it had a flat tire at low speeds...its fine the freeway.


Does your steering wheel wobble at parking lot speeds, or your ****. If either, you have a bad tire, have it checked ASAP. (if steering wheel wobbles its a front tire.)

Front end wobble/shake when at low speed or in a corner.


Hi,
There can be a few issues going on that will cause this.
(1) Bad wheel bearings
(2) Warped rotors
(3) Bent front rim

First thing to do is get the bike up on the center stand, or bike jack so the front end is off the ground. You may need someone to push down on the rear to get the front tire off the ground.
Grab the tire and try to move it side to side. If you feel movement, then you will need to have the bearings replaced.
Next rotate the tire and watch for wobble in either the wheel, or the rotors. The shop that replaced the tire should have noted a rim problem when they balanced the tire if that was the issue.
Warped rotors will give a very pronounced wobble at low speeds, and more of a vibration at higher speeds, and it will be most noticeable when braking.
If you have run into anything with any force lately, you may have a bent front axle. I'm assuming that is not the issue.
...word of advice...find a good bike mechanic. Most auto mechs have no clue when it comes these Goldwings.
Hope this helps...Ride Safe...Have Fun
