Hi there, I would start by checking for vacuum leaks around the carb, or intake. Also try taking off, and plugging the vacuum hoses and ports coming from the carb to see if any of the hoses are bad.

I assumed you would have checked tires off the list first, always the first culprit to check for wobbles. You'd notice unbalanced tires on a smooth road though too. Since we're still covering basics,...
