Front end Wobble and tires.

Since my problem with the dreaded 40mph wobble I have done a lot of research. All the tires I have had installed do the EXACT same thing. I found this site which explains the 'cupping' which a lot of people associate with out of balance tires. http://www.rattlebars.com/valkfaq/tirewear/. For this reason I think the problem is in suspension. I had the front triple-clamp replaced with a BMW manufactured factory replacement changing my front fork geometry back to what the pre 05's were. Since this was done with over 20k on the bike I think the front end is just worn, not much but enough to cause a wobble.
I'm about ready to make some lucky camper a great deal on a 06LT, never dropped, all the recommended services and a bunch of extras.
