Its when the weight that was on your shoulders and arms moves to that space behind the tank, throws the balance of the bike  :161:

Mine too. Got a bitter better with my new PR3 tyres, but not completely gone.

Mine does not do it, but I only take the left hand off the bars occasionally. I too have PR3's, plus Ohlins rear shock and Racetech front shocks, plus 50 mm barbacks, etc. Maybe one or all of these has eliminated the wobble tendency.

I had a 1971/72 Yamaha XS650 that had a horrible speed wobble at 60 mph. It was so bad, the bike could not be ridden on the highway.
