Alright guys, i know quite a bit about bikes and do ALL my maintenance/tear down/ rebuild myself. But i have a constant steady shake in my front wheel and i dont wanna pay a dealer for a diognosis. While im cruising around 80mph/highway speeds i get a condtant steady vibration in my front wheel and its extremly consistent like it does it everytime at a certian spot. But when i hit over 100+ the shake goes away. I know its not my forks cuz i got the internals replaced by a shop and forks resealed etc etc. So im debating between just a worn out front tire or wheel bearings starting to fry...please chime in if you know anything or had similar problems.

Front tire? Out of balance maybe? Check your suspension settings to insure they are the same for each fork. Good luck.

maybe but the wheel bearings are more likely along with it your front tire/rim not being balance ect.

Could it also be that i cud have the axle bolt to tight?
Im not sure about that one. There is a manual for your bike posted here on the site. It is EXTREMELY valuable for a DIY guy. I would suggest you download and print it. I know its long but its gonna be worth it to you to have. The manual lists the recomended ft./lbs. of torque for nearly everything on the bike. You can check there and see what the factory recommends and have a manual for future use.
