    yah, quite normal.

    180-200km/h, problem will come.
    160-170km/h still ok to go.

    I have rode an st11 and st1300 since 2000. The st1300 is a pretty good ride so much so that I renewed the COE recently. Its not meant to be ridden like a sport bike. Its purss well and gives a smooth rev at rpms. I rarely ride over 160km/h in sg rd hence i find the ride is good. These are probably apparent if you ride often at very high speed. Do check your tires, pressure and load in your box. All these play a part if its too obvious to notice the wobble.

    First of all thanks for the inputs.
    Of course I dnt ride that kind of speed in singapore. Tires pressure was tried at both diff psi.
    My side panniers both empty. No top box.
    And before u guys ask me to check the bearings etc and blah blah blah......Fyi this bike is new. Brand new from the shop.
    Went to agent for checked. Unfortunately they claimed that all checked and ok. And also they cant check with the mentioned speed in singapore. Fair enough. Will try again in NSH soon. See whether will there b a wobble or weave.
    If this problem dont solve looks like I wont ride this bike long. Wont even b riding this bike if they upgrade the gear to 6th speed like fjr13. Whats the point of riding a bike that is not stable.

    I think that is the stock battlax that come with it. Got spare $ can consider change to bt023. Bt020 has very uneven wear. But what i did was an upgrade of the tires after it worn off..installed tires such as pirelli diablo strada... and currently is bt023. So much better than the prev bt series. Also try make your rear suspension harder abit to see if it improves.

    Change new tire to a new one but diff and better one?
    I dont mind changing the stock (still new) to a diff one. I dont mind spending dollars and cents. But shouldnt the agent BOON SIEW make an initiative and proactive to rectify this problem???
    Nevertheless, I will take your advise. But if the problem still persist.........Thats it. No more Honda for me.
    Anyway thanks for inputs.

    I rode the st1300 for 3 yrs I don't have any wobble. Though some say have. It could be types, suspension, windscreen position, rear box, rear suspension set up , wheel balancing and roads. I seen some rider past 200 but they don't fishtail or wobble.

    Before this what bike you ride? Accessories for this bike is as good as zero in sgp. You can try eBay.

    Honestly bro, I lovedddddd my st13. It is an awesome machine, so nimble, so fast, so amazing. After riding st11, this st13 was so shiok to ride. One of my favourites. After some riding, my friend and i did realise some wobbling, and we discovered it was from wind changes from the vehicles around you. And it only happens at really high speeds above 160. Anything below, it does wobble at all. We experimented with and without top box. And then experimented on empty road and on road where there were vehicles. When there were zero vehicles, there was no wobble. But really bro, in sg you wont reach 160. Haha. So dangerous. Enjoy the bike man. If not sell to me half price. Hahahahaha! Just kidding man. Its really a shiokkkkkkkk bike in my opinion.

    Of course I dnt travel that kind of speed in sgp. Definitely in NSH. Understood when travelling passed a vehicle, can feel the wobble. At this point of time kind of regret with the ST13 performance untill the problem solve. Will try my very best to rectify and fine tune. As for the changing of suspension for a bloody new bike, its just not worth it. If this a prolong phenomenon, Honda shld stop it or change whatever necessary.

    Bros, any recommendations for tire replacement for ST1300?
    I'm currently using Angel GT; halfway worn only, but front is almost 5 years old,rear near 4 years; yup, hardly ride.
    wanting to try other tires. I didn't feel too confident in wet roads with the Angel GT. Looking for something that is good in wet roads. Short life span and quick wear is fine as I hardly use my ST1300

    Also, any recommendations for rear shock replacement? and a shop to get it from?

    thanks a bunch!

    I will not choose anything other than bridgestone. They can wear off fast but its the best grip. Shocks you can get hyperpro from motoworld.

    Wobbling could be few factors...wears on tire threads or steering cone or least possible is tire balancing.
