Hi,
I would like to share with the forum my experience.I have an XR for 5 days now.At high speed the wobble was terrible and dangerous.The bike had almost brand new Bridgestone T31.My mechanic after several hours of checks told me that the problem is the tyres.I bought a new set of Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 and the problem became worst.After that we tried a used Metzeler Sportec 3 and the problem solved.Now the bike is like "train" on high speed with no wobble.Anyone had an experience like that?

This is often a poor wheel balance issue. Many have had it.

If that happened in the US we would say "It is not the tires".
