Thanks for the info.  I always thought they could have given a few extra millimeters of slack with that cable.   :021:

Old issue. It is the clutchcable that is a too perfect fit
Thanks for your reply. If you say that it is caused by the clutch cable, and if all produced S1000R's have the same clutch cable, then this also means that everyone's S1000R on the forum here has this same symptom. If not everyone's S1000R has this symptom then maybe there is an easy way to fix/adjust this?

Lean to the left when you do let go of the handlebars.  Problem fixed.

Try riding on the other side of the road if you can.. This would eliminate/prove road camber.. Also check wheel alignment with a straight edge, running it down from both sides of the rear wheel, measuring the distance out from the front wheel.

That's a very good idea, I will try that. Thanks mate, I truly appreciate your helpful reply.

Yes, some people seems to have it more than others. I dont mine the pull. Usually use at least one hand on the bars. Have read about people on a german forum that lube the wire and it worked for them. Some have also changeid the wire for some modified s1000rr wire and that worked for them. I think this is a nonproblem for this bike. Rather want to know where the coolant is going!

My bike was made February this year and I tried this yesterday. It does pull ever so slightly to the right with no hands and I have to move my body weight to the left.

Don't notice it when hands on.

Unrelated comment but wow I love the cruise on this bike! A million times better than the cruise implementation on my Caponord 1200

Mine tracks straight with CC on & no hands on the bars however I've found it pulls to the left when doing wheelies !! Nearly everytime it'll start to pull to the left of the road when on the back wheel, not the road as same roads I've always done wheelies on other bikes & they always went straight !
