Vibration in front end above 100mph

Noticed a vibration at high speed at the track last weekend. Hadn't felt it before. New tires (Q4) and new chain and sprocket. Also had the forks serviced just before the weekend.

Another thing is that that my tire guy recently started using balance beads (inside the tire) as opposed to weights. Anyone ever used these things before?

What else could cause head shake like that?

Ummmm. Goldwing and Harley people all love Balance Beads. But the track dynamic is vastly different.

Not sayin'. Just sayin'.

Kinda figured. I'm wondering if they can be rebalanced without somehow removing the beads.

I had them put beads on the front tire of one of the bikes and it did develop a shake,
and I do believe its the beads.

I wont use them again.

Think about that - and I believe you'll determine that dismounting your tire is the best bet.
