Bike pulling to the right

Hi everyone. I am new to the Kawa world. Just got a 2009 ZX 10R and bike is great. The only issue that I have noticed is that this bike tends to pull to the right. Anyone in this forum heard or have experienced something like this. Thanks for any input.

Known issue with the Gen 3. No real solution for it and only speculation what causes it. Search and you can read a lot of different opinions. Kawi claims it the added weight of the muffler off the right side that helps pull the bike in that direction with the crown in the road.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Check your rear wheel is centered ,mine was not and it pulled to the right. Check that front wheel is centered also, if not loosen fork clamps and bounce up and down and retorque the fasteners.

Exactly whats Skydork said. I have had mine apart, have a light aftermarket exhaust, measured, etc, etc, etc. Problem has never gone away. Some people seem to have had it go away or reduced, but I have yet to find a 100% solid answer.

Thanks for your responses guys. I was also reading another blog where I found that this problem can be caused by a small spacer in the front wheel. I am going to get a shim to see if this can help. Also, I am getting a M4 slip on to reduce the right side weight. I will post as soon I got this done to see what happens.
