Hi all, anyone else experiencing the scary wabble when hitting a pothole at mid/high speeds?
The steering jerks left/right rapidly. Changed tires and that helped, tire pressure is good.
any suggestions on how to fix?

You might have tweaked your fork. It might have to be re-aligned by loosening the fork tubes in the triple trees and lining them back up then re-tightening the triple trees. They need to be parallel to each other.

Recently did the fork seals (both sides), would the shop have aligned properly in the process like you’re suggesting?
Sorry not really knowledgeable in bike mechanics...
Thanks again!

Are you saying it's fine every other time on smooth roads and when you hit potholes at high speeds it wobbles? If that's the case, quit hitting potholes at high speeds. How long have you been riding? Sometimes on a bicycle atv (three wheeler), you can overcompensate and it'll wobble. It has nothing to do with the bike etc.

In Montreal, Canada, it is IMPOSSIBLE to not hit potholes but thanks for the tip! lol.. there more holes/bumps than flat surface here!
Riding straight line on hwy hitting a bump/hole don’t see how I can overcompensate. Definitely something with the bike.

Try scooting your butt further up toward the tank. If that helps, consider the 1920 seat -- moves your COG about 2" up and forward. Solved the problem. For me. :)
