Default wobble

I get this from time to time , I turned left to go into a liquor store and it felt like the front tire was going to fall off , started shaking really bad so I pulled over looked at every thing , seemed normal I then went straight and it kinda continued wobbling , picked up speed and it seemed to have went away , when I got home I kept doing circles to try and make it do it again and of course it didnt , help anyone?

Are you sure it just isn't a low speed wobble/shake. Some put the Super Brace on the fork with good results. That fixed the low speed wobble/shake on my 1500 have had that happen again in almost 20ty years now.

That's what I was wondering.
Just stopped in for a refill, cause ran out of what you were drinking.
All kidding aside, I have a wobble on mine turning right.
The front tire is worn on the right from trike kit being out of alignment.
Sometimes if the rear tire is out of alignment it will cause a wobble.

Not drinking , tires only have 6000 miles on them and tire pressure is normal

When I first got mine I used to have, what I call, a shudder every time I slowed to a stop. I thought it was just me, learning how to slow this beast down. After I did the Traxxion upgrade, this all went away and it has been smooth as silk ever since. Four years now.

Is this a pre-existing condition or something that started a day or two ago ?

AK-20 Axxion Cartridge Kit for the front end ...



Rear ... I just did the rear shock, kept the OEM preload adjuster ...



And ... All Balls neck bearings. I talked it over with Traxxion, they told me there is no need for the fork brace, after doing all this.

What did they charge you to install the kit on the front?
