I have a similar issue...however I noticed mine well into triple digits.
I noticed it shortly after having new tires installed for a ride to Canda (from NY)
On a nice empty long strip of road, I opened it up a lil for the first time since buying the RS only a few weeks prior.
At approx 125mph, I started to feel a wobble, at 130, it got worse. Anything under 115 was perfectly fine. (I was fine with that number for the remainder of the trip.)
When I returned home, I called the dealer...I was somewhat apprehensive describing my problem of wobbles at 125mph...it didn't phase the service manager and he had it picked up and checked out.
The front rim has a tiny dent...they balanced it and to this day I have not had an opprortunity to get it back up to 125mph. They recommended leaving it alone or buying a new rim. I left it alone...for now.
