Are you running the Braga or the Zuera?  What is your caster setting?  Front and rear ride height?  How many laps are on those tires?

For what it’s worth, I aim for around 13 psi HOT with MG whites and I run a plastic front bar.

When I first started driving a shifter (CRG Road Rebel) a few years back I experienced a similar phenomenon.  I was fortunate enough to have a S1 driver coach me to the point where I brake in a straight line as much as possible (in the shortest distance possible) and focus on as little steering input as possible (and a smooth, yet quick, unwinding).  A lot easier said than done but after a lot of practice my front tires looked more like they are supposed to.
