2011 Road Glide Ultra FLTRU purchased new and stock. Driving on a road that I have been on many times and at about 60 it felt like I got a blow as I started around a soft curve and ran off the road. A mechanic said this is a problem with these bikes and there is an aftermarket part that can be installed on the swing arm to stop this. First time this has happened to me. Anyone else have this happen? Thank you. RR

Check your tire air pressures first, if the problem is still there then pull the wheels and check the wheel bearings. Check the bearings in the pulley also. If all that checks out then have a look at your swing arm bushings.

From what I know that problem was with the 08 and fixed by 09 or 10. My 08 SG wavered in corners from day one. My 11 RGU is on rails in a corner.

I'd follow the advice above. Tire. Bearings. Bushings in swing arm.

Add after this is done as Frankie suggested, head bearings, than (on my DIY page) Steering Shakes, What The Manual Doesn’t Tell You > Do It Yourself than > Steering Shakes, What The Manual Doesn?t Tell You Than open http://www.motorcyclemetal.com/downloads/Steering Shakes What the manuual does not tell you.pdf
