I have this new to me 2005 goldwing, and I am ready to out on a new front tire with the ceramic beads.
Since I bought the tire from Wing Stuff, I have to have a shop mount this for me. Talking to the shop they were discussing the 40 mph wobble that I experience when alone on the bike. The front tire is pretty cupped, question is should I change the head set while I am there?
Is this a must do change for these bikes?
Its a pretty involved repair.

thanks Bigcat, the quote I have is from a guy here in NC,

$200 labor and the parts ( in stock ) $40.00. I am not sure what brand he has for the parts. He estimated a three hour job.

Their is also a three waiting period. My bike has 47K miles on it, and I do have the wobble, which I was originally thinking it was the cupping of the from tire. Now I am thinking differently.

I would definetly change the steering head bearings and install the "All Balls"
taper bearings. My bike wobbled terribly, I changed them my self about 60,000 miles ago and have not had the wobble since. Do it you will be very glad you did.:)
