    Same here - I just walked outside and gave mine a good shake and they're solid.

    Assumig the 6 bolts holding the Bars down are tight ( 26Nm ),
    could it be that the Headstock Bearings need adjusting ?

    Put the bike on the centre stand and have someone sit on it to raise the front wheel off the ground,
    then hold the bottom of the forks and rock backwards and forwards to see if you can detect any free play.

    In any event it does't seem right and I would get it checked by your Dealer  :169:

    i have felt movement in mine when pushing it about,i think they may be rubber mounted to the headstock
    assumption  is the mother of all f~~~ups

    There should be no movement in the bars.   Check all six bolts and then the head set as Coconut suggest.   Failing that, run the bike back to the shop.  Slowly.

    Mine has movement as well. Noticed this a long time ago. When you notice the movement,  the upper triple tree does not move, so i concluded a while back it must b rubber mounted

    The bars are mounted to the upper yoke with rubber bushings.  Probably what you are noticing.
