  • Bike pulls left after true duals

    Anyone else with true duals have this issue?
    It took me some time to figure it out actually. A couple years ago I went to Freedom True Duals and noticed some time later that the bike was pulling left pretty hard. I checked all kinds of stuff like alignment, bearings etc and couldn’t find an issue.
    Then it occurred to me that the stock exhaust is pretty heave and hangs exclusively on the right.
    With the True Duals I’d now taken some weight of the right side and also had added weight to the left side.
    On closer inspection I noticed that the engine appears to actually sit a little heavy on the left side also. Likely to counter the weight of the exhaust.

    Yes, same issue with my 2008. I load the right saddle bag heavier than the left to compensate. That’s what happens when you mess with the original and well engineered design.

      Interesting, that never occurred to me before, but I have noticed my bike has a tendency to pull to one side if I let go of the bars, I'd always assumed it was the crowning of the road. I also have all my tools and emergency gear in my left bag; maybe I should drop a few tungsten plates in the right one.

        You may also notice that your are always subtly pushing on the right hand grip and pulling on the left.

          I use to notice that my bike pulled to the right pretty hard. I just moved my butt to the center of the bike and it goes straight now.
          It's not that life is so short, it's just that you're dead for so long.---unknown.
