Saking handle bars

im pretty new to BMXing. i bought a specialized fuse II off my friend for 60, it needed a new bottom bracket and spacer for the handlebar stem. The total cost came to about 100.
When i take this bike out the handle bars shake as if loose. its not a major problem but it does get abit irritating.
What i want to know is why is this happening and what can i do to stop it?
cheers

maybe tighten the headset?

if something is moving (in this case, the bars) something is loose. but because the bars are attatched to the stem which is attatched to the forks, it may be something else is loose, not the bars/stem.....
