I just got a set of race take-offs put on my bike a few days ago, and i've noticed after getting them on the bike pulls to the left a bit. It did not do this with the previous tires. Could this be caused by the left side being worn more (the track is 8 lefts and 2 rights)? I've checked the rear tire and the marks line up perfect. To my knowledge the front tire is on straight when looking at it.

You should be able to see on the tires if one side is worn more than the other. Worn edges are the likely reason it pulls left.

the left side if definately worn more, but it's pulling left during straight line riding. could that be just tire wear?

my buddy described it better than i did, he says that it falls to the left, like it begins to lean over then turn left.

Like everyone is saying, the left side of the tire is worn off more....


Let me explain it like this....

the Tire is shaped like this on the left: /

the Tire is shaped like this on the right: )

It will 'fall' on the left because of that reason. Get some new race take off's, but make sure they're evenly worn.
