Have you checked to ensure that the torque on the handlebar mounts are correct. There are only three points of alignment here...The lower clamp, the upper clamp and the handlebar mounts in the upper clamp. You are using a torque wrench and the manual for the torque spec right?
Surely you didn't raise or lower the forks in the clamps beyond the designated area that pre-set on the forks for the clamps to attain proper grip .... did you?
Axle nut torqued to 90 ft lbs ? pinch bolts on both sides torqued down?

I torqued the top triple tree bolts to 17 ft/lbs. and the bottom triple trees to 14 ft/lbs. I checked the handle bar mounts...they are good no moving there.
I have had this problem for awhile. I recently moved the forks 5mm up. Still well within the limits. But, it did it when they were in the stock position.
I will recheck the axle nuts torque and the pinch bolts...hadn't thought of that.
