Slight Death Wobble

I swapped out my back wheel to a nice all black Enforcer rims with new tires. Anyway, after swapping out my front, the bike ran perfectly! Hands free at all speeds, and no, just to test for wobble.

I just swapped out my back wheel/tire and all of a sudden it starts the infamous death wobble above 35 mph..

I've checked the alignment within a 32nd of an inch as well! It's in there dead straight.

Any ideas???


So, before anyone asks, this is on a 2009 RG. And before someone asks, yes I did have them balanced!

Tire pressure? Steering head bearing out of adjustment?

I replaced the bearings on both rims when I replaced them. Also I have checked the tire pressure.

I'll check the neck, but why would this show up when replacing a rear tire. The bike ran perfectly before the rear. I just thought I mis-aligned the rear somehow.

Put the old wheel back on, if problem goes away, it's the new tire or rim.
