Motor mount, motor did not shift when I disconnected the top stabilizer, but they look pretty distorted.

The singing has a frequency/tone very close to the ringing of the spokes when tapped. It has to be something right there.

Just seems it would be the front tire as you just changed that. I wanna say the hum would increase with air pressure on my XR650 if I remember correctly. If it was a motor mount or something I would imagine it would do it simply by firing it up and standing there and leaning the bike over while running.

You didn't change helmets recently did you? Cause that opens up all kinds of noises.

Nope, helmet has been the same arai for 15 months now. I am needing to tear the forks down for an oil change and stearing head bearing next weekend, we will see then...

Ok so Friday I put the new wheel bearings in and rebalanced, all is well, no more singing...

Saturday I did the neck bearings, they were dry and gritty, so they were replaced, also put new fork oil in as it was apart already, happy bike...
