Bike hard to get back to turn right after hard left

I am not sure if my suspension may be set up wrong for my weight and height but after I come out of a hard left it is very hard to drop to the right quickly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks

When was the last time you had your steering head bearing adjustment done?

Re: Bike hard to get back to turn right after hard left

how old are your tires? is the front wearing more on one side etc?

also make sure the front forks have the same rebound, compression and preload adjustments.

you would know already if the steering head bearings were loose. you would feel it clunk over bumps.

Not like i'm an expert but there are too many unknowns. Did this just start? Are you counter steering? Did you change something (tires, or brands)?

k its not the bearings b/c i would hear the knocking and preload is set right. my tires are generally new and have equal wear on the left and right side.

Re: Bike hard to get back to turn right after hard left

if the bike is just sitting still, turning the bars left and right fast does it still do it? Could it possibly be the dampner???

I would think if it were the damper, that it would effect the right to left lean as well. A damper isn't set for one specific side... It is set over all, which affects leaning both directions equally.

Depends on the damper. My Scott's damper has settings for range of damping from center to left and center to right. If not set correctly, it will dampen more on one side than the other.
