when I let go of the bars I get a shimmy, I have changed the front tire, still there. could it be bearings and someone said to change to tapered bearings dose this sound right. If it is bearings is it something a half As guy could do himself

well you have to pull the front end apart, which involves removing the forks and sterring head assy...the hardest part is supporting the bike so it doesnt fall

Look here to replace steering head bearings on an FJR like mine. Summary of steps and parts pic are at the bottom. It'll give you an idea of what's involved. IMHO on a difficulty scale of 1-10 of normal DIY maintenance this job is a 5 the first time, a 3 after that.
