S1kRR 'veer to the right' fix
Got some feedback from service tech on the veering to the right problem that is common on the S1kRR. The service techs at a local dealership put new tires on and found the rear axle was off - kinked at an angle.
They aligned it, and the bike does not veer at all now. I can feel the difference even with hands on bars. Handles way better now.
The bike was totally stock and untouched since factory when I took it in.
I only mention cuz when I first got the bike I researched the issue, and started another thread on it, and I saw a number of different ideas on what was causing the problem, but no one was confident on a solution..
Some said get a lighter exhaust (weight reduction on right side), some said there was something with the clutch (I think), and a few other myths/ideas.
The alignment adjustment did it for me.
Odd it came from factory like that.. ?
