The only thing I found to solve the problem was changing out the head bearings, Ive got close to 2500 miles on the new bearings and the bike runs great.
I'm tempted to do that job, but afraid I'll screw up
I asked a dealership and they said they'd do it for $300 !! (RIP OFF)
I know it takes a long time to get done, but I can't spare that much

have you done it by yourself?
is there a video or any guide line? special tools?

Yes, I did it myself, all you need is a manual and a few tools,
Read this thread, it might help

Well I finally changed the rear tire, I have 20/K on it.

I might have squeaked out a few more miles but the weather is starting to turn and didn't want to risk it.

I've got 22/K on the front and was going to change it as well but after careful consideration I decided I still have another 5-10/K left in it.

I'll post the final mileage on the front in a couple of months.

that new tire definitely looks very tempting to ride and put miles on...

The tires are Michelin Commander 2

Front is 100/90 B19 57H
Rear is 160/17B17 73V

I cannot say enough good about these tires, I got 20/K out of the rear (I could have got more) and have 25/K on the front and still going.

I only ride the street, about 100 miles a day, mostly between 75-85 mph. (a lot of HWY) I wouldn't put anything else on for the type of riding that I do.
