Re: Front end play
Does your bike seem to wander at 25 to 35 mph, needing constant correction? If so front ball joints are suspect (there are no steering head bearings so to speak)
Have you checked your rear wheel and swing arm for play while on the center stand, grab the wheel at 3 and 9 and give things a wiggle. The back can be wheel bearing (crown bearing), rear swing arm pivot bearing or rear swing arm pivot up front.
Shocks in good order. Tire pressure good, tires good, all that stuff.
Most likely culprit if all seems okay is the pair of ball joints up front. Wunderlich sells them for $100 each if it goes that way. Not that easy to install unless you are proficient with tools and have the Manual.

I change your tires $50, you buy them on the web.
