Hi. I just purchased this in Brooklyn. It has a nasty tank slapped type wobble when accelerating after a turn. Being a HPS rig with Bill Ballou CHS, I am assuming this is not normal. Air pressure is 22 lbs. no steering stabilizer but previous owner rode it 20k without one. Where do I start?
Thank you

Hi Bill, This is a first. I actually drove your rig at the Northeast 3 Wheeler Rally 2 years ago and it showed no such behavior. I would do the obvious and check for any looseness. Have you made any adjustments to the front caster since you've owned it? I've sent you a PM with my email address and phone# Please feel free to contact me directly.
