with regards to the issue that many others have commented about the steering wobbling, many others have adjusted their suspension to better suit their weight and seems to help in the situation.
 
let us share our suspension information below to see what is the recommended setup for street riding while alleviating/resolving the wobbling issue.

front rebound: 9 clicks (towards soft)            (standard 7 clicks;            1 ~ 11 clicks;         1 being hard ~ 11 being soft)

rear preload: 3 (towards soft)         (standard 4;           1 ~ 7;       1 being soft ~ 7 being hard)
rear rebound: factory stock
