clark....my dirt brother...my bike looks just like that...
Okay, so I've been having this weird feeling with my front end lately. It's almost like I'm in a constant slide with the rear end coming around to my right. In any event, I've been trying to track it down and ran across this issue. There is about a 7mm gap between the axle holder at the bottom of the fork and the odometer pick up attached to the hub. Is this normal or do I have a problem, i.e. missing spacer or bent fork? Those of you with '05's, run out to the garage and have a look for me will ya'? Please tell me all is right with the world and I'm just a nervous mother with her first child ...SC

Or ...like me , your right forearm is way bigger than your left ..from holding beer can...and its causing you to lean to the left to compensate for the uneven body weight.....
Dman, you da' man! I knew you'd come to my rescue. Okay, thanks loads, now I can have another beer and chill. I guess I'll have to keep searching for the cause of this mysterious "feeling." It all started when I went with a 120/100 on the rear end and I'm due for a new rear tire. I've got a 110/100 waiting in the wings, so perhaps that'll cure my issue. I figure it's one of four things now, the rear tire size, the rear axle is cockeyed , the fork oil is low/bad spring in one of the legs or the Scotts damper is funkified and needs some TLC from the shop...SC
