98 Sportsman 500 shimmy's on the front end at low RPM and pulls to the right. I first thought maybe a loose wheel but it was all tight.

Any ideas why it's doing this?

ball joint or alignment, could be the problem . To check the ball joints jack up the front end and see if you have any movement from top to bottom. check your owners manual they have instructions for the alignment. you can only set the toe, but it something you can check. Also when its jacked up spin your tires and see if you bent a rim. how many miles do you have on your 98.

You could also have a brake caliper sticking.
