Yeah i ride the naked version and notice it when gunning through the gears, but too be expected with short wheelbase and lots of power. The best thing i found is just relax the upper body and it all settles down. But if yours is doing it at constant speed, get it checked out.

Front end definately gets a bit light when pushing on into 3 figures but as jjwelly says short wheelbase lots of power its gonna do that

Certain people are like slinky's, no apparent use but always bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs

I find keeping my tires at the recommended pressures minimizes the head shake.

#1 Make sure your suspension is setup correctly. If the front end is too chattery, you probably need a bit more rebound damping.

#2 Hold the bars more lightly. Consciously let your weight be held up by the seat and the foot pegs instead of leaning on the bars. Squeeze the tank with your thighs if necessary.
