84 1200 goldwing vibration at speed

Hi all, Needed to replace the tire on my 84 Goldwing so I removed them and had the local Honda shop install the tires, added 90 valve stems, (DON'T DO THIS) and Ride-On balancer. When putting the front tire back on, found the valve stem would hit the break housing. Removed the cap and it would clear fine. Test ride found very bad vibration from 0 to 60 but went away after 60. Returned to the service dept and was informed that the bead in the front tire valve stem had been broken and was losing air. Honda made repairs (replaced with a straight stem) and seems to run fine now at 70 and below. Start to get a bounce/vibration over 70 mph but don't plan on going much over that any way. What do you think is going on at the higher end.
