    possibly wheel not correctly balanced but strange that only there when leaning right so it needs a wee bit more investigation

    Look your tires over carefully for a slight bubble on that side. If your tires are in good shape, check your motor mounts. If they are ok then I don't know.

    What was wrong with the tire you replaced? When you replaced the tire I would assume that the wheel bearings were checked at the same time. Did the vibration start with the new tire or was it there before and after you changed them?

    Are you saying you replaced both the front wheel bearings and tire recently?.

    Sitting on your bike (engine off) roll your bike forward and stop quickly with the front brake. Do you feel clearance or hear an excessive clunk sound ?

    If so you need to tighten your neck bearings.

    Also how long has it been since you checked or changed your front fork oil ?

    (just fishing for possible cause or problems)

    Are your wheels Laced or cast. Check a few things right off the top. I would check both planes for run-out, especially if laced wheels.
    Since your bearings are taper roller, I would also check hub endplay. The shims need to be correct which could easily be overlook.
