Default Pulling

After riding my new Gunner for 4000 miles I have noticed that it is pulling really bad to the right. Has anyone else noticed a pull? When letting go of the handlebars it immediately pulls sharply right and I have to really put weight on the left side to keep it on line down the straights.

Let me guess... You are running stock exhaust or Vic stage 1?

All the weight is on the right side. A lot of the steel frame bikes do that. My ole KP was the same way

Those 2 cannons weigh in at 42 pounds... Once I threw those in the trash and put the Bassani's on i could take my hands off the bars with only minor pulling to the right.

Ok, thanks. Didn't think of that. I have been looking at replacing the stock pipes but hadn't decided what to use.

IMHO... RPW Slash, Bassani turn outs or Hackers Zoomies are the only way to fly on steel framed Vic's.

"They all do that". Both my Gunner and to a lesser degree, my Kingpin pull to the right. It does get old after a while...

Default Got to ask

Are the wheels lined up correctly. When I first got my XR it pulled to one side. I checked the rear wheel and yes it was not straight.

My Gunner pulls [A little] to the left if I'm riding on the left of the crown, And when I'm riding on the right side it pulls [A little] to the right' I found the easiest way to remedy that is never take my hands off the bars.....
