Maybe steering head bearings came loose and must be a bit tightened? If I remeber right, when wheel off he ground, 1.2-2kg's force must be able to start move all when connected to center of one of the fork's top.

Stock shock's preload till maximum does not help- this old stock spring is too weak anyway...

Never noticed the instability then - just seems to have become noticeable in the last few thousand miles
