In comparison with the other bikes I already had, I noticed this bike to be very sensitive when gently and rapidly turning or shaking the handlebars at low speed. The bike immediatly reacts by slightly moving left and right. So I decided to remove my hands from the handlebars (just a few cm away) when slowing down at a red light and the handlebars began to oscillate or wobble. It doesn't do that all the time, but it did a few times, depending of the state of the asphalte.

Anybody else has noticed that?
Would a steering damper be a good thing to add? Maybe the oem front tire (IRC) is the guilty guy and I should look for something better but the pressure is fine.
I once had a RZ-350 and I added one. It helped for the stability, especially , IMO, when dealing with a light bike.

Has been covered mate, I believe it is the poor quality steering head bearings.
