Does anyone know why this happens? When i turn at slow speed rather sharply the steering kind of gets heavy like it wants to “fall in” to the direction of te turn. Never experienced it on my previous bikes. I love my GRiSO except this characterestic.

Have you checked your tyre pressures recently?

Check steering head bearings and swingarm bearings next and maybe a different brand of tyre.

Still sounds like tyre pressure - sounds too low.

That's what I thought. I run 36 front 38 rear solo, or whatever that is in bar.

Mine is 37/40 on Michelin Road 5s. What tyre are you using? How worn is it? Does it happen when cold, when hot?

2.5/2.8 bar or 36/40. Road 5’s.

Steers much betterer than factory default.

The amount of pull through on the forks alters front rear behavior
