Has the steering stem bearing nut been adjusted to the proper torque?

Also, I don't have my owner's manual with me now, but I believe the contact information you want for problem resolution is in there.

Front end wobble - Fix

Dick,

I posted a fix for the front end wobble last month.

After trying everything else, the final fix was replacing the fork oil with 15 grade oil.

History:
Replaced tires with Metz = still wobbled
repacked stearing stem bearings and retorqued = still wobbled
replaced fork oil = FIXED ... Ride is soooooo much better.

Changing fork oil is real easy to do .... see the link previously posted for pictures and instructions.

HONDA ADDRESS

All the contact information is in your owner's manual.
THE ADDRESS IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL ONLY GETS YOU TO COUSTOMER SERVICE IN CALIF.
I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING THESE PEOPLE RE THE WOBBLE SINCE SEPT.'02.
ONLY GET STUPID COMMENTS FRON SHOPS.
THE BRAKE PROBLEM IS THE SCARRY ONE. WHEN HOT, MOMENTARY LOCKUPS. A REAL BUMMER ON SANDY OR SLICK ROADS.
THIS IS STILL UNDER WARENTEE AND HONDA NEEDS TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEMS IS STEAD OF GETTING A RUN AROUND.
I AM STILL WAITING FOR THE DISTRICT DERVICE REP TO CALL. 3 + MONTHS NOW!!!

I hope you're not trying to do all of this over the phone. :!:

DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT,

Put everything in writing and mail with "return receipt requested" in order to protect your interests.

HONDA ADDRESS


BEEN ON THE WEB FOR THE LAST HOUR.
AM WRITING TAKEO FUKUI, PRES. & CEO HONDA MOTORS.
MAYBE I WILL GET SOME HELP.
CALIF. CALLED YESTERDAY 12/15 AND TOLD ME THEY GOT AHOLD OF REP. HE SAID HE WOULD NOT BE BACK UNTIL FEB. '04.
THEY ARE TRYING TO FIND ME A REP IN EITHER GA. OR TN TO LOOK AT THE PROBLEMS.
IF I DON'T GET ANY RESULTS, I WILL LOOK FOR A USED INTERSTATE TO TRADE ON.
DEALER, LAST TIME I WAS THERE MADE THE COMMENT, "YES THERE IS A SEVERE LOW SPEED WOBBLE" AND LET IT GO AT THAT.
LOT OF HELP THAT IS.
KEEP DIGGING.
DOING USA THIS COMMING YEAR ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.
DICK
