Is your tire cupped ???

Are the neck bearings adjusted correctly .....according to the Service Manual ?

How long has this been going on ????

How many miles on machine?

How many miles on tires?

What tires?

What pressure? Front. Rear.

Happens during acceleration of deceleration or both?

How fat is your ass? (What do you weigh)

What preload do you have the rear shocks set to?

What accessories are on this bike?

Who manfg each accessory?

Last maintenance done?

Welcome, from Oregon.
Check everything mentioned in previous posts.
Low tire pressure AND cupping, usually on left side of front tire,
can make things shaky.
Worn front axle bearings and/or improperly adjusted or worn
steering head bearings can make things very sketchy, as well.
Ride Safe

Probably checkin the list bbally put down and that could take a while :wink
especially the How fat is your ass?:grin as everyone knows is open to interpretation :tush
You have no idea how many times I hear someone bitching about the handling of their bike. I look at them and think "bet the mini rhino never adjusted the shocks."

I ask them what they weigh, walk over with my shock wrench and make the proper adjustment and they are happy.

For phuck sake how hard is it to understand the op manual where is says adjusting shocks for your weight and load?:devil

Had a similar issue when under WOT at higher speeds & took it to the dealer & they tightened the neck bearing & problem fixed.
