Hi guys I have a question if you can help please,on front end braking the forks feel like they twist left slightly I can see it at the top stem pinch bolt,are the left and right fork legs identical inside xb9s ,if you where racing this movement for sure would affect the feel,any ideas??? Also has anyone used pirelli angel tyres and what do you think of them ? Many thanks

Do you think it is anything to do with the non standard head bearings :idea:

I'd strip the front wheel off again and all cables etc then start by checking your head bearing adjustment then have a look at your front wheel spindle trueness and or alignment, like is the caliper central on the disc, does the front wheel spin freely etc :idea:
