41 --- Steering bias to left or right
Wheels out of alignment. This can be caused by impact damage to the frame, swinging arm, wheel spindle or front forks. Al though occasionally a result of material failure or corrosion it is usually as a result of a crash.
Front forks twisted in the fork yokes. A light impact, for instance with a pothole or low curb, can twist the fork legs in the yokes without causing structural damage to the fork legs or the yokes themselves. Re-alignment can be made by loosening the yoke pinch bolts, wheel spindle and mudguard bolts. Re-align the wheel with the handlebars and tighten the bolts working upwards from the wheel spindle. This action should be carried out only when there is no chance that structural damage has occurred.
