Going through bumpy turns, the front feels like it's connected with a rubber band. I've checked, the head bolts are not loose, but it still feels wobbly when leaned over. Is this normal? I'm not getting a planted feel in the corners, makes me nervous.

This is a good time to check all nuts and bolts connected to all suspension parts front and rear. But you know what? Mine felt like this once and it was the front tire pressure! Bring it up to 2 lbs under full pressure and give it a ride.

Does it look like any fluid has been leaking out of the top of the forks? Have you checked the fork oil level?

Besides all the front suspension bolts, also check that the bolts on the removable frame section on the right side of the frame are tight.

One other thing to check, although I wouldn't think it would cause what you describe, is that the tire bead is seated correctly around the rim.

Haven't seen any leaks. How do I check the fork oil level? Never even thought of that.
