Alright, . . . to make a short story long, I've got a vibration in the front end at highway speeds. Comes and goes in rhythmic 1-2 second pulses [confused] Have checked head bearings, replaced wheel bearings, pads, rotor, rotor mounting hardware. balanced tire etc. . . occurs at diff rpms and speeds????

you might want to have the tires checked for balance,I had a honda nighthawk that I put new tires on and afterwards it wobbled at certain speeds,I knew a front end alignment guy who found that the front tire was molded wrong at the factory which was why I could not get the dealer to properly get the tire balanced.:D

I had the same problem with a front tyre, there was an extra thick section to it and at higher speeds you really noticed it.

They replaced the tyre FOC.
