Hi folks,

After lurking here a few months, I finally got a rig, an '85 K100RT with an EML GT sidecar. I think I'm the 5th owner; it's lived in Michigan, Minnesota and Tennessee before I took it home to SC.

I'm in the make-friends phase, and the thing handles sort of like a dump truck. So, basics first. It pulls steadily to the right, enough to require light but constant pressure to keep it straight. Research tells me that not enough toe-in can cause that. I'll check it after work today, but I have not found how to adjust it. Any ideas?

Also, I'll check lean-out tonight as well. Adjustment looks simple enough, and I know to check it with a load = my weight on the suspension, but are there any nuances or gotchas I should know about?

Also, if there's any EML-specific doc available on the Web, please send me the url. Thanks!

So you have the EML rig! Nashville, TN, from the IBMWR site??

I called on that rig one week after they sold it to you. I'm just entering the market for a similar rig.

Sorry I can't help you on the pull issue.
