I put about 60 miles on today and when slowing through 35-45 mph I felt a little movement in the bars. I took my hands off and got a good wobble. The bike came with 250s and had a slight wobble that you couldn't feel until you took your hands off.

I put on Stones for the next 50,000 miles and never felt a wobble.

I have been running 36 psi in the Demon in order to get a better ride and will try higher pressures to see if the wobble goes away. If things don't get better, I'm going back to OEM Stones on the front. Still love the Kumho though!

Are you saying that all that wore out the moment I replaced the front tire?

I put another 300 miles on today and I think the tire and I are "bonding". It is quiet and smooth at 36 psi. I have gotten used to the amount of counter steer pressure it takes to turn at speed.

Thanks to Meteor and Rocky for pointing out that many factors come in to play in regards to the front end. Sorry about my smart a** response, Meteor.
