If the bike did not have the steering head torque checked at the 600 mile service, I'd highly recommend doing that before declaring you have steering bearing issues. All FJR's should have this check in the first few hundred miles.
To add, IMHO, the final torque of 13 is a bit low, should be more like 15-18 ft. lbs. All my Hondas specify 18 and a resistance check of the handlebars (which we did in the old days as routine).
