      You haven't mentioned what tires you have put on. I have had that with brand spanking new Michelin Pilot Roads. Like running on ice with two flats. Make sure the load index of the tires is big enough. I switched to Dunlop Roadsmart II and never looked back.

        I've had it. turned out to be incorrect balancing the first time round. Re-balanced...perfect ride.
