Slight front end shake/wobble at low speed

2011 RGU Dunlop 408F tire
right away notice that at 25-40 slowing down slight shake in front end figured it was neck bearing.
took in in for warranty adjustment they check it and found it a little lose but. Had no effect on the shake.
They changed out front tire right away shake gone.
Dealer said it was the second one they found and it was only on new bikes not something that showed up down the road a few miles.
However I may not have noticed it as soon except I had a very light hold on bars as I slow down coming to a stop.
This may explain issues some have brought up.

Re-badged Firestone?

Maybe just a crappy batch of tires off the line.

If it's upside down and burning, you've gone too fast.
