Just bought a 2018 Connie and when I release pressure from the handle bars I get a hell of a wobble. It only has 12,000 miles so I’m thinking it probably isn’t the neck bearing being loose, I could be wrong, not feeling any play at the wheel.

Probably not the steering bearing with only 12k miles. Can you post some pictures of your C14 and describe the condition when you experience the wobble? What are tire pressure do you keep? Also, are these still the original tires?

The tire pressures are 42/42. It runs great until you release the grips and then it acts like a spoiled kid at the grocery store wobbling horribly. I’m taking it back to the dealership today since this only the fourth day I’ve owned it. I’d have known this earlier if I could have been able to test ride it.

Your tire pressures are not contributing and since a dealer just sold this bike, it probably doesn't have the original tires. I'm trying to recall if I ever experienced this with my '12 C14 of five and half years. I had my forks slid up in the clamps a quarter inch and most of the rear spring preload taken out.

Do you have a trunk mounted behind the seat? Stuff inside it?
