HOR wont turn left


I just finished putting the bike together and was anxious to see how it would run, so I took the bike out for a test drive without the rider. For some reason, the bike will not turn left. It turns right just fine. Nothing seems to be binding, and servo seems to have full range. I've tried adjusting the trim and end points, but it still won't turn left. Could it be the lack of a rider?

Are you sure you have the servo end points adjusted properly?

...and who better to fit the bill. J/K

I'm pretty sure I have the end points adjusted properly. I put a rider on it, and it only made a slight difference. I then tried it with a 6 cell pack instead of my 2 cell lipo and it started to at least lean over. I'm wondering if it's not a weight/balance issue.

Thinking that the motor being slightly offset (to right) from center might be the reason why it won't turn left, I stuck some lead weight on it's left side. I'm not sure how much I added, but it seems to have done the trick. I still have some more testing so I'll see if there's another way.
