...some people don't have this problem at all due to the left testical being larger than the right...much worse for those with the opposite...food for thought.

dang, beat me to it. i was just gonna suggest that, if it isn't already, you should move your "package' to the left and see if it makes a difference.

jeez rapid, we're both pervs, eh?

you have a excuse, on account of living in acton.
i'm in oceanside, thus am heading to the store to buy an excuse right now....hopefully they have some that are "new and improved" or at least "20% more FREE!", two terms i absolutely will never understand...

off to Home Desperate....

OK, With all the talk about offset rear wheels and wheel spacers, I thought I should through it up on the lift and check the alignment. I used the string method and found the the alignment was within a 1/32" from one side of the front wheel to the other. This leads me to think that the pull to the right is caused by the weight of the transmission, swing arm and final drive all being on the right side.

wc, you should bring that bike to the dealership immediately.
it should be "more out of whack" than that.
something is horribly wrong if the wheels line up. go complain.
next step: i'm waiting for somebody on this board to disembowel the tranny, swingarm and drive to see if it rolls straight.
come on you guys, i just know SOMEBODY here can't wait to find out!
