If you are talking about the "hands off wobble" it could be a tire if your tires are worn. I just replaced my tires and the "H.O.W." is gone, but I've never really worried about. Never had a problem with even one hand slightly on the bars so a hands off decel wobble was of no concern to me.

If it is a wobble with hands on... hope it is just a tire.

I really don't know any mechs other than at the shops. My ride is at D&D getting a new rear progressive shock installed. I recently had the front end done with RaceTech emulators, then noticed the back end was not to my liking. Hope this is enough of an improvement to make it worthwhile.

I was going to attempt the work myself but over the last few months I just haven't had the desire to go beyond basic maintenance. I'll do oil, plugs, brakes, clutch fluid, air filter, wheel removal, minor stuff. Nothing beyond that. I figure this shock and the forks are a one time upgrade for my time with this bike, so I'll pay to get it done right. And my wife won't be subjected to my cussing.
