You could always put on some struts and run her ridgid to see what tells you.
I like your idea and I quite agree with what scooter bob say's that a little something off trigers those wacky moments and sometimes its perfect.Can anyone just try tightening up the rear axle shaft as much possible and see if that helps.I had the instability before I got the puncture but after putting a new tube and fixing the wheel back, it was gone. I didn't touch anything else except tightening the rear axle way too much. Usually I keep 28Psi at rear which helps a lot but this time it was 32Psi and it behaved far better.What if the the shocks are not vertically centered on the swing arm, can that create problems ?
All your doing is making a week swing arm stiffer. I would be careful about over tightening, and ruining the bearings.
Swap sides with the rear shocks, that might show something too.
These shocks are gas charged I believe, one of your may have sprung a leak.
I just went and a 45 mile ride at varying speeds up to 75mph, on glorious new pavement and the cracked up old stuff with the washer spacers in place. While I had no problems before, it now some how seems better, don't know if it's a change in vibration or what, but it is something I can feel. I thinks it's worth the effort.
I think what he means is that the top schock mount bolt on the Indian C5 from outside to inside goes like this: acorn nut, shock, fat seat bracket, frame.
