Default Bike shaking at high speeds

Ok so I was goin 135mph and my bike was pretty shakey so I didn't go any faster. Is this normal for these speeds or is there something wrong?

Seems like something is out of balance, tires or really windy?

have you hit any big pot holes or came down hard a few times from a wheelie? i would check the balance of wheels and wile you have them off have them make sure they are true.. next would be rotors but usually it would do that at lower speeds as well...how even is the road you are on? how windy is it? are your tires smooth? lots of small things it could be..my bike is smooth even up to 150mph..

no you shouldnt wobble. these machine are made to be raced, you most likely need your tires balances or something along those lines, but im sure somoene will come through with more experience than me and be able to help you further

I'm not sure because mine did that around that speed as well with my old tires, So I just put a brand new set of PP 2ct's on and had it balanced and it still does it but not close to as bad.
I would love to hear as well if someone knew what it was?
Also it was worse when I was on the throttle.

Check tyre balance & correct pressures, rock forks, check wheel alignment (string thing) ive had my cbr at 150mph and didnt get any wobble.
