rear end wobble

Hello all,

I'm having a hell of a time keeping the rear end from shaking since I stretched the bags and fender. It usually happens at around 90+. I'm wondering if this is because i didn't put stretch side covers on the bike. I also have my rear progressive shocks dialed down pretty low (not sure if that matters any). If anyone has some advise on what steps to take to get this to stop i would greatly appreciate it.

thanks in advance

No rear tire change, I would check the tire pressure and rear tire alignment to start with. Bags & fender should not cause a shake/wobble.

I start to notice a slight wobble around 95ish. my guess would be tire pressure or soft shocks. I'm running the standard shocks.
