Front end shaking

I picked up an 04 R1 and the front shakes when I take my hands off. It is okay at times and then it shakes again. What all can cause this?

Check the flux capacitor. It may also be the muffler bearings are worn out. Call Patrick on those. He'll help you out!

Check the tire pressure first, while you're down there take a look at the condition of the tire; is it cupped, worn on one side?
What do the forks look like? Any leaks?
Was the bike wheelied a lot?
The steering head bearings may just need an adjustment.

If you get time, bring it by and I'll look at it, no charge.

It is most likely a combination of both wheel balance and worn out front tire. Mine did it too and I put a new tire on and it's all fixed.
