Default Bumpy Ride HELP!!!!

Okay guys. I need some help with this one. I recently bought a 2012 GSXR 1000 and I have only been ablre to put 3200 miles on it so far. About 250 miles into my last ride I noticed that the ride started feeling really bumpy. Every 5 or 6 seconds riding down the road it feels like my front tire is falling into a dip. Even if I put the bike in neutral and roll down a hill with the bike off it does the same thing. It has that same feeling at 20mph and 90mph, through acceleration and deceleration, cornering and straights. Keep in mind it only has 3200 miles on it. Does anyone have an idea of what it might be? I have checked both tires for any abnomalaties, the chain tension is good, and both sprokets look good. I'm thinking of buying a cheap chain to throw on it and see if that helps, even though the chain does not seem to be streached too much in any particular spot. Any input would be appreciated. And BTW this is a completely stock bike, nothing has been changed.
