I've been on my bike for 2 weeks now and one thing I have noticed is that if I let go of the handlebars that my XR will track to the left pretty fast. My Suzuki always would track straight or slightly off, according to the slope of the road I was on. My XR tracks to the left no matter how the road is sloped (many of the roads are crowned in the middle out my way). Is this normal for the X bikes or is my rear wheel or front end out of alignment.

troubleshooting from the book: damaged steering stem bearings or races, steering stem over tightened or under tightened, low tire pressure, rear wheel not aligned correctly, bent front axle, damaged or excessively worn front tire/ incorrect tire, damaged wheel bearings, damaged swing arm bearings, loose swing arm pivot nut, bent frame or swing arm... So if it is new it is something simple like rear tire not aligned with front tire..belt adjustment would do this..

I am hoping to get it in for the 500 check up in the next week or two and will let them know. I am hoping it is the rear tire out of alignment but as Jmckeown said it could also be one of the brakes slightly sticking. All in all the bike is running great and the tranny has really smoothed out now that I got over 400 miles on it.
