My new 2012 has a little of the 40-45 mph wobble! It's not as bad as my '08 was! I hope a good fork brace will help, if not I will have the all Ball Bearings put in!!! Anyone else with a 2012 having any wobble issues at those speeds?

800mi on mine, no wobbles noted here. Never had any on my 15 that couldn't be explained.

You can bind up the stock bearings just like the all balls:thumbup::thumbup:

Over tightening the stock bearings don't do anything useful. I'm glad I don't have any wobble on my 08.

Were your hands on the handlebars?
Hands on handle bars, yes! and at between 40 to 45 you can feel the wobble just like my 2008 had. After I had All Ball Bearing and a fork brace put on the '08 the wobble was gone! Looks like i will have to do it again with my NEW 2012!!! Come on Honda, FIX THIS!!!!!!!!!

Check the date on your tires. They probably had some let over 2010 tires and stuck them on your 2012.

After all, it's a 2010 with different tupperware,. Why wouldn't it wobble.

I didn't have the decel wobble until around 9000 miles with my 03. I installed the All Balls steering bearings and did suspension upgrades and the decel wobble was cured 6 years ago. All Balls torqued to 20 ftlbs and I have no decel wobble.

Only after my third front tire on my 03', did an ever so slight "hands off wobble" occur at 37 mph coasting. Put one finger on grip and it stops.
