help!!! bike tech read this

ok i have an 07 zx6r. it has 19.5k miles on it. today i noticed a buzzing sound coming from the front end. the only thing that i think it could be is that i noticed that my wheel isnt even on both sides. the axle is a mm or two to one side. i just got the fork seals done on it. the sound i can hear with my helmet on kicks in at about 7500 rpm and goes up until redline. does this sound like it could be that or is this a motor issue. once again it isnt a knock or clank or anything it is a buzz that i can slightly feel in the right handlebar. i think it could be the pads vibrating against the disc maybe the fact that its off that much is causing it to reverberate. any thoughts on this.

Are you sure your windscreen isn't vibrating super fast and you can't see it? Does it buzz while it's moving or sitting still

Did you press the round, black thing goes around the keyhole?
That's what vibrates on mine, but way before 7000 rpm's

It's usually one of the levers, or something up front, nothing serious at all. If you search on Kawiforums there's several topics on this.

Our levers sometimes rattle. Your type of bike likes to always throw the engine light. We win.

Not a problem at all, that's partially what this forum is for. Brand or model specific forums are usually better at pinpointing problems though, so I figured I'd let you know in case you have any other future issues with your specific bike.

Hahaha I dunno anout the real part, but I want one as my streetbike. I like the 1000RR as well because it fits me so well, it's just seriously outclassed in power. The new Aprilia is appealing, but the factory is around 20k. A $9,700 OTD 10R is MUCH more appealing.
