I went through and replaced the bearings, seals, tubes and tires on my CB350 but now when I ride it the front end feels very wobbly along with the back end kicking every time I hit the gas. Not entirely sure what I could have done wrong. I also put on new spokes on the back tire, maybe I didn't get them balanced properly, I'm not sure but need help asap.

Is the bolt holding the rear wheel to the swing arm tight and adjusted to the same mark on both sides? Look at the Honda CB250/CB360 Shop Manual for procedures and torque specifications.
Front axle nuts should be 19.5 to 23.8 ft-lbs (manual page 70) with any gap present to the rear of the front axle.
Rear axle nut should be 58 to 72 ft-lbs torque (manual page 111) and adjusted to the same mark on both sides of the wheel. Drive chain should have 3/4 inch movement midway between the sprockets (manual page 28).
Ensure the rear swingarm bushings are in good shape and that bolt is tight.
