Also welcome from NORTH TEXAS..check fork seals.. and also the stem bearing.. take load off front end (wheel clear of the ground) have some one support thje frame and the pull push front to back on the wheel near the top of the fender... some movement may be from the fork seals but any clunking or lots of movement may indicate loose or worn bearing.. also it is always easier to get in to the fork mounts with the fairing and lowers off the bike,, this will give you a start.. ( all bikes cn be checked like this.. not just the 1500"s.. I own an 1100)

Welcome, [user=1137]sorryarcher[/user]. :wave: [user=895]Joep[/user] pretty much hit. Try doing the "test" to see how your bike fits in. Maybe as simple as re-torquing the head bearings.

Wallowing on 1500's is usually related to worn fork bushings and loose steering head bearings, than springs or oil or air pressure.

A little ATF stop leak mixed with the fork oil will help keep your seals fresh....
