Line up your bars with the forks first, if the stay lined up after use, then its your fairing thats off a bit. Maybe not hooked well on the radio carrage. Doc

So your handle bars right side is lower than the left side, bent bars or pulled up bushing, Bike drifts to left is an elignment problem, rear wheel or engine. Doc
