Having read the OPs posts and his replies I'm leaning back towards mechanical.

Are you 100% sure the bike is fine? The tyres aren't squared off? Are they on the right way round? The suspension isn't fucked? the steering damper (if it has one) buggered?

Maybe reset the suspension to factory defaults? Maybe whoever set it was a fat bastard?

Whack it up on the centre stand and test the wheel bearings? Alignment?

Google "motorbike handling issues" and work through the basics.

I find it hard to believe it's you. Not to that extent. Sure bikes are different but only so far. Some are faster, some stop better, some turn in sweeter but at the end of the day, with a few notable exceptions, a bike's a bike until you start riding it in the upper quartiles and it sounds like you're not doing that.
