Find a shop or dealer that would be willing to help guide you through checking your wheels' alignment. If your bike has a centerstand; Haynes says 25-30mm slack at the tightest point on the chain. Loosen axle nut a bit, loosen adjuster locknuts, then turn the adjusters out to tighten the chain or in to loosen the chain. Be sure to turn the adjusters the same amount on each side, verify by noting which line the notch lines up with on the adjuster.

Thanks Shawn. I was also forced to do chain adjusting on the road and as my bike doesn't have a centerstand, I had to do it all from the sidestand. I think all went fairly well considering, following the notches and all. I had the bike wintered at a dealership and didn't notice the steering problem before it went it, just that the chain and sprockets were in quite bad shape.
Hi mate , when I first got my Sprint Sport I suffered the same sort of problem. At that time it was shod with Dunlop tyres ( quite a hard compound ) and it wanted to follow the white painted lines and pot-holes. I blamed the tyres and changed to Conti Road Attacks, and what a transformation, however it still wasn`t right so it was back to basics and out with the Haynes manual and reset all of the suspension settings. Now I point it and it goes where I want.
Make sure you set both front fork settings the same and then balance the rear suspension to the front.
Hope this helps Yours Aye,
