  nothing to do with the road camber , my 2020 will favor to go to the right if i take my hands off the bars , the exhaust is heavy and it is the only thing i can think of .

Maybe you can join this with the lean angle thread?? Really Increase your lean angle,  we know the man with the biggest lean angle has the biggest cohonas, (typically the left is bigger than the right). This increase in left cohona size will ballance out the weight of the right can? And you will no longer pull to the right (make sure you dress to the left too)
Basic physics me thinks  :745:

after reading some of those comments it seems to be the exhaust causing the left hand pull to the right , to be honest it doesn't bother me in the slightest , doesn't spoil my ride and i have no  uneven tyre wear. once the gp slash cut exhaust comes out  (soon i think!!) i will be removing the stock exhaust which will cure it any way, as for the comments about the bmw 1600 i had the gt version 2015 superb ride although very heavy at standstill i put the left hand pull down to the torque coming from the shaft drive , just my thoughts

just wondering what exhaust you have fitted to your 2020 model , i am waiting for the slash cut they weigh next to nothing , with no wrap around straps , but still open to options ,

I got my 2021 Ninja1000sx few days ago, traded fore it the Z1000SX i had from 2016
First thing i noticed is the little pull to the right when not touching the bars.
I haven't sorted the suspension yet, but it seems to me there is  some problem.
I will check it at the 1000 KM oil change with the dealer

i  think you  will find as discussed it is the weight of the obnoxious, heavy exhaust kawasaki have fitted to this bike . if i remeber rightly my h2 sx se did the same  i am still waiting for the pro race slash cut to fit the 2020 model, shouldn't be long now, (i hope !!! )
