Hi, I live in Auckland, New Zealand and just bought a 1998 VN1500 Classic a couple weeks back. I experienced tyre noise / rolling, possible bearing vibration when taking corners and so checked this out at my local Kawasaki dealer. They checked bearings, all ok - replaced the rear tyre with a brand new Pirelli (Metzeler on front) it seemed to make the difference, but yesterday with a pillion rider I get a slight vibration when turning corners with that slight bearing vibration. Anybody else out there experience this??
She's a great cruiser and even better with the Vance & Hines straight shots! cheers

check the front end, make sure your head is tightend down and that your front forks are straight...


i'd suggest that as a starter

+1 Spok... also check the front tire carefully for cupping... get the inflation up to 40psi, especially if you ride 2-up.
