Thanks for the feedback jd. I'm going to start with re-torquing the steering stem, as I think there is a bit of play there (so hard to tell for sure). I checked the engine mounting bolts and they're all good, and no visual damage to the frame. I may start a new thread asking owners who have the sw bellypan installed, to see if anyone will do the same "test" I described, and see if they get the same results. Cheers.
Edit: Just wanted to add some background. My bike is an 07, which I bought new. It has 70k kms on it, never been dropped or otherwise damaged. I ride it pretty hard, but probably no harder than what you've seen on your trips. Never jump it or wheelie, and as far as I can tell, never bottomed the suspension.
