Wheel hop

My 10 has approx. 4k on it. I noticed at around 30-40mph my front wheel sort of hops, like it is not perfectly round. I bought my bike new and noticed this after a few weeks of riding. Stepping off of a kaw 600 not knowing how the liter bikes ride I thought this was something that would go away after the break in period. I forget about it until I do the certain speed which is not often and when I do it is not long enough for me to notice it. My tires pressures are set the oem specs. and tires seem to be in pretty good shape but I have no idea what this could be............anyone have any idea or have experienced this before? Any comments or suggestions would help.......thanks in advance.....

Are you trying to say the wheel recall or the non-existant fork recall?

I was pointing out that Kawi had a front wheel recall. Or either the wheel is out of balance.

I would have to say out of balance, with it happening at a certain speed almost always says balance.

It ain't wheel balance at 30-40 mph or you wouldn't be able to stay on the bike at 100. I suspect you got the preload and compression damping turn up way too high.
