Your steering head bearings may be loose or need to be replaced. Fork damage would also cause this. You can download a general Honda service manual here
Chapter 18 shows how to service your forks & steering stem. Haynes & Clymer also made manuals for your motorcycle, either shows the procedure in detail.
Depending on what the problem is, this could lead to catastrophic failure of your steering at an unexpected moment. I urge you to fix it as soon as possible.

Most probably the balance, as Tina said. Could also be that they didn't fit the wheel correctly and it's running slightly on either the left or right side of the tire - let's call it the "vertical alignment" that is out. He must take it back to the dealer and ask him very politely (with a tire-iron if necessary LOL) to fix it properly.

SOURCE: front end slow speed wobble
First off - Did you take the whole front end off to install the lowers? If you did - did you tighten the Main locking washer on the uppper triple tree to the correct specs? You might want to raisee the bike off the ground with a scissor jack under the frame and then with someone holding the bike steady see if you can move the front tire sideways or up and down. This is will tell you if that locking washer is loose or maybe a bad bearing in the front end triple tree

with a taller tire in the rear you have changed the rake in the front. Also could be neck bearings/fall away adjustment,rim trueness or tire balancing

The first thing I'd do is have the wheels and tires balanced. When they spin them up, they can tell if there is any wheel "truing" problems as well.
Then, they or you must make sure the rear wheel is in alignment within the swing arm. Make sure that the adjuster bolts on either side of the swingarm are adjusted to about the same length.
