f650gs wobble

2012 f650 gs. lighter in front end than my 09 1200 gsa. expect that, but at speeds below 50mph the bike is light but han dles ok. at 70mph, if i move the bars left and right quickly they do not settle but make three to four oscillations before settling. 3800 miles on bike. loose head bearing? poor geometry? need stabilizer? anyone else have this problem? bike has never been dropped or hit a hard bump. tire pressure at owner manual specs. please advise. thanks
