When I bought my 2004, with 12000 miles, it had a disconcerting low speed weave and a tendency to drift at high speed. I did the following things to resolve the steering issues:
1. tire pressure to 32psi
2. Adjust steering bearings (they were to tight)
3. Align rear wheel
4. replace front tire
Of the four, the steering bearings and replacing the front tire had the most effect.
(bike has stock front fender and no hand guards)
ymmv as your bike has 500 miles vs mine at 12000.
