during hard breaking if the back tire locks up the rear of the bike swings out to the right. this has happen to me on three or 4 ocasions, and it always swings right. I was wondering if this was a normal poblem with victory's or is my bike not tracking straight?

what i have noticed and i haven't had a chance to get to the dealer yet to see if it is normal. there is a very slight bend in the swing arm. It is very slight and apears to be uniform on both sides(maybe a degree or two), is this to compansate for the belt or do i have a problem

the death grip on the clutch might pull the handle bars to the left a little
