Can we have a report please with the panniers off and screen set low just to eliminate them?
Hard to think a bike that 'young' would have front ball joint problems. Rear drive and swingarm possibly, wrong tires definitely.
The OP needs to do a few checks in the most likely areas. Even if the results come to nothing it gives piece of mind.
1. Lift the front wheel off the ground, spin and check it runs true. Then waggle the wheel hands across the tire to check for any wheel bearing problems.
2. Undo one end of the steering damperer so it hangs free and does not interfere with checking the steering, Move the steering lock to lock using the front wheel and check for any play front and back - there should be none.
3. With the rear wheel just off the ground, grab it at 180 and test the rear drive output shaft bearing for any play. Repeat 3 or 4 times moving the wheels around each 90 deg. Rotate it and check it runs true.
4. Is the rear wheel/tire stock? Remove the wheel and check the spacer is still fitted on the wheel hub - it can drop off and be left off!
5. Tie up the RD and swingarm to the seat rail, Take off each end of the torsion link in turn waggling the bar to check any play or give at each bush.
6. With the torsion link removed, take out 1 (or both ?) shock bolts so you can get some free up and down movement on the swingarm. Do not let the swingarm drop right down to the ground, else the front tranni boot may pop off. In this situation you can check the RD pivot and swingarm bearings for any notchiness or side play. As well as feeling the up and down movement, try twisting the whole lot clockwise and anti clockwise. Many do not understand that it is virtually impossible to check most suspension systems when they are held under compression or tension. Once you remove that, you see the real issue on bearing and bush wear. There should be no play whatsoever.
This may seem a lot to do and you may not find a problem. But you will have peace of mind that parts most likely to wear or cause problems have been checked.
