I did a search to the old forum but with no luck. The bike pulls left when I leave my hands from the handlebars at low speeds.
Changed my tyres yesterday and the guy who did the fitting, forgot to align the rear wheel. Almost sure that this was the cause, I realigned it. WTF, no positive results...  
Missing something here?
Any feedback would be appreciated.

With the bike on the front stand, loosen the pinch bolts on your forlks, spin the wheel, hit front break making it stop abruptly, repeat again and tighten pinch bolts.

Cliff : With the bike on the front stand, loosen the pinch bolts on your forlks, spin the wheel, hit front break making it stop abruptly, repeat again and tighten pinch bolts.
The service manual says to first tighten pinch bolts on right side of bike (when sitting on it) and keep the left pinch bolts loose. Next, squeeze the front brake lever and push down on the forks (while sitting on the bike) several times to seat everything. Than tighten up the left side pinch bolts and you should be good to go.
For the rear, I believe their is an article in the Knowledge Base (by abtech?) that shows how you can measure the distances from the adjuster blocks to the end of the swingarm to check the rear wheel alignment.

Both of these methods have worked really for me.
