New bike pulls to right

I've seen this issue here before but could not find it > My new zx10r 2009 steers to the right when i let go of the steering . I have had many bike before this one and never got that before , always ran straight . Anybody have a solution ?
At first i thought it maybe the crown of the road but even it i ride completely to the left hand side of the road is still goes right !

Some people changed the spacers in the tire and had great success with that. Some claim that changing the stock exhaust helped or aligning the rear tire. My 3rd gen fortunately don't suffer from this.

It's from the crown in the road, which eventually creates a crown in the tire....

You can try what was said above, none of it worked for me. It doesnt pull as bad as it used to, but still does none the less, I just learned to live with it.

Wrong, it has nothing to do with the crown, trust me.

Check your rear wheel and make sure its aligned evenly on the swing arm ...

Take it back to the dealer and have one of their techs ride it. They will take care of the issue. My 08 didn't have this problem but I had a buzzing in the front (a minor little buzzing that most wouldn't even notice) and they took care of it. Dude, its a new bike trust me... they'll make it right

Mine did this and I had to move the right side of the tire up one notch on the swingarm. Perfect alignment now. I know that's odd as hell. I'm almost sure its the triple though. Just off setting it with the rear tire. I never wheelie so it doesn't matter much.

That or the swingarm is messed up.

If I recall correctly we had one guy on this forum that found out he had a bad new tire creating the pull to one side, so keep that in mind as a possibility.
