Default intruder not tracking straight

I have a 93 Suzuki Intruder 800 that seems to track to the left when I take my hands off the handle bars. It has new tires front and rear tires that were installed by a dealer and the forks and handle bars seem to be straight. Can anyone give me an idea of what is going on?

this is a non-stop issue? sometimes tires arent made perfectly, and you get what is called "radial pull"...take it to the shop that installed the tires and ask about it..i dealt with it quite a bit while working on cars.

Forks and handlebars may look straight but the frame could be tweaked. That might cause tracking problems. As for the tires that could also be a problem-take it to the shop and check and make sure the frame is straight and that your wheels are true and straight as well.

do you have saddle bags on it? if so is the weight even on both sides also make sure one side doesnt stick out farther than the other wind pressure could affect it
