Motorcycle pulling towards right.

Recommended Posts

Few days back my Honda Dazzler fell towards right while riding all due to stupid auto driver who overtook me without any warning & went away without stopping & bike pretty much took a heavy hit as the speed was approx. 40 kmph. After few days I had changed its cone set because bike was making "khat khat" sound whenever I used to go over a pothole it was way before falling & cone set had to be changed. After installing new cone set my bike has been wobbling I went to Honda service center they checked & mechanic tightened the center big nut which is below handle bar, after that wobbling issue went away now the bike pulls towards right whenever I go over small potholes or a road filled with continuous potholes at a decent speed of 20 kmph, bike starts to pull towards right. Again I went to Honda service center to rectify the issue. They test drove it did some adjustment to the big center nut problem got rectified but again there was a slight pull towards right service center said that handlebar has been bent towards right so it is pulling towards right. So I said ok, make it aligned they kept the bike for whole day & I guess they had aligned the handle & said everything has been done. After few days again the bike started to pull towards right whenever I go over small potholes or road filled with continuous potholes. Now really I've not idea what is causing the problem & I cannot leave my bike in service center for whole day. Has anyone had the same or similar problem? What is the solution to this problem?

There may be 2 reasons for this.

  • If your impact was considerable, there may be an issue with the fork being bent to a very slight degree.
  • The bearing which is responsible to turn the handle might have been impacted and may need replacement.

There is a chance that both these things may have happened.

My suggestion - don't take it to the authorized dealer. Take it to a good local mechanic and he should be able to repair it perfectly pinpointing the exact issue.

  • @neerajd As I said in my query I had changed its coneset after falling from motorcycle. So coneset problem is ruled out. I guess fork might have been bent slightly. Now I really don't have time to give my motorcycle for service anywhere. My schedule is very busy working from 10 to 6 from monday to saturday no holidays in between.

Since it's a Dazzler, I guess new set of forks should not be too heavy on the pocket. Do think of that option if time is a concern.

Any local mechanic (with the right tools) will be able to swap those in under 1 hour for you and may pay you some amount for your current forks too.
