Double checked your front preload, damping, and rebound settings for your weight and road conditions?

I had a really minor bit of wobble around 100 until I got my forks re-valved and set up. The wobble was fixed right up.

10+ years and you're just experiencing this? Lol

Yeah, head shake can be caused by lots of things. Short, powerful bikes with a sharp steering head angle accelerating over bumpy surfaces is the easiest way to experience it (remember the TL 1000's reputation as the widow maker?)

Also, badly worn front tires can do it.

MY 954 used to head shake like crazy. That Scott's damper really worked.

My TL1000R was a mean . I remember one of the first times I rode her, I grabbed a handful of front brake when someone pulled out in front of me and she slapped harder than I ever thought was possible. Harder than my dirt bikes.

It took a guy from Roto-Rooter 30 minutes with a crow-bar to remove the seat from my after that one.

Steering geometry makes a big difference and having a proper setup.
