If the following is detailed in another topic/post, please direct me to it. Thanks in advance.

Having just hit 16K --and not sure what the previous owner may have done maintenance wise-- I did the service: replaced belt and spark plugs, engine oil/filter, air filter, fork oil, new dust seals/covers and had front wheel balanced (as there were no weights on it at all). ...even cleaned all the brown "snot" from the breather tube. Yuck!!! But man is she wicked fast now! 0-50 in mere seconds.

Can someone explain why I suddenly have a front wheel wobble? If I let go of the handlebars, anything below 40mph produces serious wobbles. Any ideas?

On page 14-16 of the 2002-2013 service manual, it show a picture of the fork spring with the caption "facing up" pointing to the right near the smaller/closer coils. From what I've gathered via manual (and YT videos), the smaller/closer coils are to be at the base/bottom of the fork. Correct? What would likely be the result if springs were inverted?

Desperate for an answer as I'm desperate to ride. And so is my 11 yo daughter. Smile

I’ve split the “front wheel wobble” discussion to its own topic.
