check your rotors and your tire it may have flat spots due to being not balanced correctly

tire is in good shape, only vibrates when brake is on, i noticed this maybe a month or two after i got the bike, the rotors dont seem to be warped but after 5 months i dont think they should be either

Does the lever pulse or is the front end just chattering?

if it makes kind of a clunkinng noise when you hit the brakes then i think your steering head bearings are loose, or your rotors are warped

i doubt they are warped, i have never abused the front brake, just use it normally if not lightly becuz of the vibrating, the bike has had all its check ups done at the stealership so i would assume they would have noticed something loose like that

we're all human and people make mistakes.

go and sit on the bike and grab the front brake and try to rock the bike back and forward and see if you hear any knocking or clunking if no then your bearings are tight

More than likely it's your steering head bearings. My F4 does it too (bad). I just aint had the time to change them out. I'm allways working on other peoples bikes here at the shop.

some peoples head bearings go out in less miles than that...some people's last for the life of the bike....it's a one of a kind situation.

although it sounds like you have warped rotors.
