Things are getting better
Thanks guys for the suggestions and putting up with a frustrated rant.
Last night I loosened the rear axle bolt and attempted to aim the rear wheel just a little to the right to bring the bike back to more normal tracking. My imagination or ??? The bike tracked better and didn't have the hard right pull. Brought it home and again checked the rear wheel alignment and adjusted belt tension. I know that exhaust system weight is a big factor but now if I put 2 six packs in the left saddle bag the bike steers almost neutral.. What seems strange is
that even if you mal-adjust the rear axle adjusting nuts, most of it gets nullified when tightening the rear axle bolt to 65 foot pounds. The rear wheel is pretty much going to be pulled back in line.
By the way, installed Victory short windshield, Victory small leather bags, ebay safety bars, deluxe Victory passenger seat and back rest, Kuryakyn cheese wedge chrome accent strips and a home made front fender extender using 3M commercial double stick tape. Just enough stuff to make the bike work for us.
