Howdy from east of Lee's Summit the 20 wght fork oil helps a lot withg the nose dive and with handling my steering needed adjusting at the 1000 it took care of the shaking at low speeds most guys go to heritage bars that will bring it back to you did you get the custom or ultra.I have the ultra and boos and I or happy with the seat takes a while to break it in we put about 5000 miles on and it got about the way I like it. Ended up with 19000 this year easy bike to put the miles on. Welcome hope we meet soon will help you get it dialed in

Thanks for everyone's replies. I have been researching a bit on the handlebar threads. I would like to try and find someone near KC that has a bar that works with stock cables. Of course, letting me sit on it would be key in making my decision

Would love to sneak a ride in with the guys that live close but the stealer called me today and said they tightened the steering nut again. I made reference to the fact I couldn't bring it back every 500 miles for this "torquing of the steering nut" and that I don't believe that would address my issue. They said they would keep the bike a few more days and have their "fork" guy check it over.

He admitted that all they checked was brakes, steering nut and fairing for loose components. Ignoring the forks completely, not even adding the heavier oil...

qkshift* I have the ultra
