I own a Suzuki Gixxer and it tends to turn right while riding. I see my tyre and handle don't align. And I feel the forks are misaligned. Took it to a dealership, they are trying to dupe me to replace the fork assembly.
Did anyone of you faced similar problem " forks misaligned"? Can you advise?
Thanks in advance.

You'll have to remove the wheel and check the axle alignment. I'd suggest you visit a local mechanic and get it done. If your bike is still under warranty and if you don't want to take any risks, then insist the service center manager that it needs to be aligned and not replaced. Normally misalignment happens in the case of an accident. If your forks are misaligned right from the beginning, then you can get it repaired under warranty only, I think. Hope this helps. Let us know if the issue is sorted. Cheers.
