I have a 2011 FLTRU with approx 8000 miles. The bike has developed a pull to the left and wobble at around 40 mpg, it is worse during decel. I had the wheel balanced and the steering head bearings checked about a month ago. The wobble has gotten worse and the pull started last week. Any help appreciated.
Thanks

No real noticeable wear, looks even everywhere I look.

does the brake disk look nice and shiny all the way around on both sides?
Or are there dark spots around it?
Try buffing it out with a scotchbrite pad and see if that changes anything.

Thanks Guys, I had not thought about the brake sticking.

Cleaned the brakes and the problem of pulling left is gone. The wobble between 40 & 45 still persists.
Thanks,

Have your steering head bearings checked again. Fall away should only be 1-2 swings on the FLTR. Some techs adjust it like all the other FL's at 5-6 swings. This is a known problem with the '11 RG's
