Steering Problem?

Hey guys. I seem to be having a problem with my front end ( I have an 08 just under 4k miles). Anyways when I turn the wheel just slightly as I begin to lean it just feels totally off. The wheel seems harder to turn at low speeds when leaning isn't really involved much. The air pressure in the tire seems to be fine 29psi? I feel like the wheel is just going to drop out from under me when I lean just a decent amount. For example if I'm going to turn left once I turn the wheel left and then begin the turn, the handlebars are basically trying to turn all the way to the left (or so it feels). The bike did not use to feel like this.....

PS the bike is all stock except for visual mods, Stock TIRES.

Stunt cage is not the cause either cause that has been on the bike and this problem is new.....?

I dont know for sure but it sounds like it may be the electronic steering dampner malfunctioning or something like the Bank angle sensor throwing it off.

+1111 ^^^^^^^ the steering dampner is self checking if there was a problem there the hesd light would be on .. bank angle has nothing to do with anything but shutting the bike off when its tipped over .. the tires are chopped up and or squared off as you turn the bars and lean a little bit the sharp edge is bitting the street and pulling the bars ..

Turns out the pressure was lower then I thought.... I think it was just in my head. I let a friend ride it and he said he didn't notice it. (After I added some air). Then I rode it again and it feels better. I think thats all it was....

Now I just look like an
