    Has anyone else who rides the Tri Glide experienced the motorcycle pulling to the left when braking? If so, what are likely causes and fixes for this mechanically inept rider to suggest when I write the check. Thanks, Andy:p

    One question comes to mind and that is have you checked the air pressure in the rear tires?

    Do you have drum or disk brakes on the rear?

    If you have drum, the left side shoes may be adjusted too tight as compared to the right side and that is causing the pull to the left.

    Be sure that rear suspension is in alignment and not trailing left. That would cause it to lead left while braking........... Also check that neither caliper is sticking and releasing all the way...............
