Hello,
I changed my bars out to tbars and now I have a death wobble if I ride with one hand. It's controlable....for the most part.

Looking at my tire the center of the tread is out further then the rest of the tire. Never seen this. It's a Dunlop D402F. When I look at it or run my hand down the center it feels like it's out further on the right side then left side etc.

Anyone have any issues like this????

Looks like tire cupping. Usually caused by under inflation. You can add a few extra psi over oem recommended to help smooth out, but it needs replacing.

Yes it could. Did you have the wobble before the bar swap ?

Your tires are cupped pretty badly. Yes, cupping can cause wobble (not really wobble, more like oscillation). I had a worn front Michelin Commander II that started wobbling like you described. I had new tires installed and the problem went away.

My Dunflop, along with many others in the pile at the tire shop, cupped pretty badly. Theyre very sensitive about tire pressures. But im sure it will happen with recommended tire pressures too. That will definitely cause ill handling. Just experienced that recently myself. Switched to Avons and they handle incredibly better in comparison. Ive been hearing alot about the Michelin Comm IIs as well being the "go to" tire.

On my '12 Ultra snugged up the head bearings and went to the Michelin Commander IIs and life was good.:smile:
