Front End Wobble While Riding No-Handed.

I was wondering about my Ninja 250. How should the front end behave when I take my hands off the handlebars? Mine will start waggling back and forth at speeds around 35 mph. This bike has tipped over several times-eventually breaking off the throttle side handle bar (which I replaced of course.) My mechanic says that the bike pulls a little to one side but I don't really notice it much while riding normally..

Is the wobble caused by damage caused by the tipovers or is the wobble normal for such a small bike? At 55 mph, the wobble is much less pronounced.

My bigger bikes (750 cc) are rock steady. Any info is appreciated.
