pulling to the right

Postby richnhinners » Sat Sep 18, 2010 4:38 pm



Here is a post to make you all shake your heads and say tsk tsk
so the problem here is the 1500 pulls to the right when i put the cruise on and fold my arms nonchalantly as if guiding the bike by mind control.
Although i can correct for this by either pushing a fingers worth a pressure on the left handle bar
putting one leg on the highway bars or hanging one cheek over to the left.
While i can steer pretty well this way it concerns me that i should have to lean that much more to the left than the right.
any thoughts on what could cause this? i do have a little more stuff in the right saddle bag but i dont think that is the problem.

Crown in the road, perhaps? Go out on a deserted country road, swerve over to the wrong side of the road, and try it - see if it drifts left instead.

no this is real consistent not caused by wind etc same part of the roads east west doesn't seem to matter
real consistent over an extended time (1 or 2 miles)

Just a thought ,check the height of the forks in the triple tree.If there is a difference it could cause your pulling to one side,maybe swing arm bushings/bearings?

thanks ya know i will try the left lane of a four lane to check the crown theory and it does have 105k on it so i think the swing arm bushings might be worn.
