Head shake at the last half of the 1/4

The last two times I went to the strip I started to get a mean head shake.

I can make it through first and second just fine but through 3rd and 4th I have to let off because it becomes scary. I Got the front wheel checked for balanced and messed with tire pressures. If I turn the steering damper to a stiffer setting it just makes it worse. My next place to look was if the back wheel was was cocked a little more forward on one side dude to me putting the tentioners in different spots.

Any suggestions?

Did this start all of a sudden or did you make any changes and then it started?

I would double check your fork settings to make sure they are indentical on both sides. Wouldnt hurt to loosen your pinch bolts and follow the procedure for re-installing the front wheel. If one of your forks is binding that should take care of it.

I did take the front wheel off and put it back on. I went on Saturday and noticed it again but if I take my butt off of my seat and lean all the way on my tank it wont really do it. It is making me mad and I dont want to keep going to the track if I just wobble the whole time.
