The Harley Wobble

This is targeting a 16' FLHX Twin Cam and a 17' FLTR.

I understand this is the suspension forum on a site.

Other than the obvious "suspension" parts (front forks and rear shock) including the triple tree on these bikes, what are guys doing to stiffen these later bikes up?

Soon, I am going to be replacing the belt drive on the 17' FLTR. Are there any improvements, within reason and other than replacing with OEM, that can be done to the rear swing arm pivot assembly for example to tighten things up?

The newer scooters don't have anything like the death wobble from the old three mount suspention.

But if you get the power up a ways past 100/100 and like to push it in the corners, there is some give to the rear pivot that can be annoying.

You can fix that by adding a strut to the rear of the power-train.
