So I just thought I'd share that with the group here as I've read so many different attempts at and supposed solutions to the problem including the replacement of various joints in the front end and the expensive damper replacement.
Maybe it's different for each bike , and maybe mine will come back leading to a deeper problem , but for mine right now , changing the front tire did the trick.
Thanks for giving me hope. i suspect and hope that the tires are the solution with regard my '07's 43mph front end shake.
