      Different road with greater camber to your usual wheelie spots?

        i'm with Steve on this one............"road crown" is the slight off set slope of the street surface to help water drain off to the side of the road and not puddle up and cause people to hydroplane. it can be pretty dramatic in some places. when i was an automotive tech working on suspension i would set cars up with more positve camber on the left. this would help the car track straight down the road, instead of pulling to the right.

        if you ever take a long trip (boring) down the highway on your motorcycle check out the wear pattern on the front and rear tire. the flat area you just created will appear a bit off center.......road crown is the cause of this.........

            Maybe it is due to you bouncin off your back wheel whilest doin zee wheelie hop

              The higher and longer and faster you get those wheelies the bigger your gonads grow, perhaps the right one is heavier than the left one and you need to wait for the left one to catch up :dunno

                    light weight.

                    I have a cup holder on the right side and therefore, when a beer is in it, the bike tends to lean to the right more.
                    Is yours half empty or half full?
                    I know nothing about bikes.

                      Might make sure that you are not tugging the bars that direction when you start the wheelie. I drift left because I tend to steer the bike toward the center line before I lift it. If I think about it before I start they stay nice and straight. I try to correct the drift by leaning away from it but I normally get nothing. I am practicing stand ups so I can steer it better.
                      Don't know how it works? Take it apart and find out!

                      Here's how it sounds.

                          Try carrying your handgun holstered on the left, any diff...


                          j/k

                          I notice the same thing tho its always to the left. Sometimes very noticably on the same road. Is your tyre pressure ok, I find mine tend to be straighter with around 36 or so in the back. I used to have a slow leak and I could always tell when it had dropped below 30psi

                              its ok man, it'll pass i promise. All of my rolling stoppies when i come in at about 70mph tend to fall to the right side at the end. Sometimes its like that for a week or so....sometimes i go through a left side phase. It'll be alright......ooh yeah, P.S. What are you doing 1st gear wheelies for? 3rd is where its at (stand-up) , unless ur 12 o'clock
