This makes me extremely happy since it was really starting to drive me nuts!

I still have a slight pulsation in the brake pedal when stopping which is kind of disappointing for new rotors. I plan to have them machined to smooth things out. Everything is otherwise back to normal.

I appreciate all the help everyone offered. The guy at the tire shop said they aren't aware of the Bonneville being such a problem for vibrations. I suspect this is simply because they don't see many of them. He tells me the Honda Odyssey is an absolute nightmare though.
Glad to hear it'* all squared away! I know it'* time consuming and expensive to have the wheels done on a GSP9700, but what an amazing balancer it is. I am having mine done this Thursday to FINALLY get rid of this wheel vibration.

It'* also nice to hear of a case where it actually helped. Some have reported no difference, and where it has, they haven't often reported back.

I believe there is a lot of value to other members in knowing what works and what doesn't. I'm pretty fortunate to have a well paying job but I get the impression that some members here can't afford to troubleshoot by "process of elimination". The more we can help each other to pinpoint the "most common" causes of problems the more time and money we'll all save.

I hope this resolves your vibration issue, Chris. I trust you'll keep us in the loop here. Mine were $30.00/each (+ tax). IMO worth every penny (and then some). I can't even begin to tell you the "Irritation Factor" I experience by little things like this.

Thanks again for the help everyone!

Hi everyone, just thought I would follow up and let you guys know I went to a shop which had the GSP9700. I had the Auroras tires balanced. The difference is night and day! They DID notice some play in the drivers side front wheel bearing, so I ordered that part and will be replacing it shortly.

Overall, it was well worth the effort!
