Hi guys, quick one for ya, just been for a quick ride and started to notice a small wobble from my front wheel while turn at low speeds 10mph or so (i.e. from my drive onto the main road and vice versa) Any ideas why it maybe happening??? dont notice it at high speeds, i think. Any ideas would be great, cheers guys.

I'm taking a stab in the dark here but your wheel might be misaligned or you might have thrown a few of those wheel weights. I'd expect that to cause problems at high speed too, though.

Have you checked air pressure?
:O

If its good, then start checking all the usual stuff, tire not worn funny, wheel bearings in good shape, steering head bearings in good shape, front/rear wheels properly aligned etc...

The wobble only happens when im turning a low speed corner, like from a main drive way to the road, no wobble when bike is in a straight line. Im gonna check pressures and alignment tonight. I heard it could be the wear on the tyre has become squared a little, although i dont do many motorway miles. Any other suggetions??? Cheers guys
