My 02 RK just developed a decell yawl like wobble from about 65 or 70. It's a little disconcerting to say the least. Replaced the rear tire at 8000 the front has about 9000 on it but still looks OK. Progressive springs front and rear and the bike is not lowered. Spokes on both ends. Any ideas where to start looking? Bike only does it on decel from above 65.

OK just checked the rear spokes WOW MOST are loose. The front are all ok. Spoke wrench i guess, but how do I know when to stop? Don't want to overtighten.
Thanks.

The procedure for truing wheels and tightening spokes is in the manual. If you don't feel comfortable doing it, take it to someone who does.
