Ok so i just got new tires put on my 650R but when i get into hihg speeds that were once easily obtained and controllable now the bike seems to shake. Like the back tire is wobbling or not balanced correctly anyone know whats wrong?

Check the tire pressure.
The balance may be out also.
You may also have a defective tire or a spacer may have been left out.
Take it back to whoever did your work and have them check it out.

Most tires have a yellow dot on the sidewall that's supposed to be lined up with the valve stem, its the lightest area on the tire & makes it possible to use less weight in balancing. It seems almost no tire person knows this, i pointed it out the last set of tires i had mounted on my car & of course they said "it dont matter". I told them its the RIGHT way and to look at YOKOHAMA'S website if you dont believe it. There's usually a yellow & a red dot, both balance oriented , on the sidewall
