17in wheel conversion issue

I finally found a 17 in wheel for my 96' 900RR. I ordered a 120/70/17 wheel installed the tire rotors however forgot to balance it befor installing it on the bike. OOOPS! Anyway i have an issue and maybe this is normal but i will ask anyway. when i ride going into a turn i have to fight the bars almost like it wants to turn too hard, meaning i have to keep the bike from turning too much.

When i looked at the specs of the tires there is about 10mm difference in diameter from stock 16 in tire wheel combo. do i have to lower the forks to compensate for this or have i change the geometry too much. i was searching the web befor i decided to go this route but nothing mentioned this issue or even the tire size they used
