I don't know if it will help with the stability issues or not but if you change rims/tires, avoid that grooved SpeedMaster................those tires leave a lot to be desired.
.........Any certain brand have better control?
In my humble opinion, replace the Avon Deathmasters as soon as you can.

Okay...wiil do. Thx!
i had the bt45s on my 06 bonneville. rear went 10k miles, front was still decent.
This will save me a good bit of cash!
What did you think of them in the wet? I end up riding the rain a lot. The AM26s are ok in the wet but not great.Overall the AM26s are pretty good but they've never been confidence inspiring at high lean angles. They stick but maybe the feedback just isn't that great, feels a little weird. Also, it's very easy to lock the rear. That's probably also a function of the rear drum brake. It's adequate but the feel on it is pretty wooden. I try to use the front for most of the braking while just touching the rear, more to keep the bike composed than to provide stopping force.Scott

make sure you let us know how those tires work out for you. I'm still back and forth and can't decide what tires to get. so unfortunately I'm still riding with the original tires.
I said he could keep the tire irons, I'm sure I'll never need them again
Man, I've found a lot of great uses for tire irons, and it ain't changin' tires. They are great general use levers. They can pop a head off a thumper in short order! And sprockets and other tight bits! Aligning Motor Mount bolts on aircraft engines, Etc,Etc. Sho' wouldn't give mine away!Bare
