Default Front wheel wobble

Here is the issue.&nbsp\\; When slowing down to come to a light (30mph or so) and I let go of the bars, the bars and front wheel have a very definite wobble.&nbsp\\; Once&nbsp\\;I grab&nbsp\\;the bars it stops.&nbsp\\; It seems that it is there also during very slow manuevers.&nbsp\\; Any ideas.&nbsp\\; Ride is an 08 Road Glide with about 1500 miles.&nbsp\\; Thanks all in advance.&nbsp\\;

Steering head bearings adjustment? Front tire pressure?

I had the same prob with my 06 herritage. same speed too thought it was too much weight on the back especially when the wife was riding with me ( no pun intended ).
I tightened up the steering a bit, which helped a little. But it never went away.
sry couldnt help

One front rotor not running quite true. Rotor touches brake pad at one point is tire rotation. This will cause the no hands tire wobble at slow speed. It will also cause the front tire to cup. Come to a slow speed stop useing only the front brake. If you feel a pulsing then this is the reason.

My 08 roadglide has the same wobble since day 1, I had the front wheel re -balanced, did not cure it. Then I was wondering if it had something to do with the way the motor mounts are installed on the 08's.
