GSXR 600 Front Brake Issues

I have a 97 GSXR 600 and I am having some issues. When I apply my front brakes, I feel vibration on my steering column. I replaced my rotors and most of the vibration went away but it is still there. I noticed while I brake and the vibration is present, it appears as if my steering stem is moving. It seems as if it is not tight or something. Bearings gone bad or do I need to tighten the stem nut? I have no apparent steering issues just when I brake I can see the rubber grommet moving in sync with the vibration as if the stem is not tight. The nut on top of the tree is tight… Please tell me what you all think.

The nut to tighten up the steering head bearings is under to the top tree.

Thanks, I checked them today and they were loose. My pistons were sticking in my calipers as well. I cleaned them with brake part cleaner and solved my braking issues.
