    Default 2007 2.2 direct SRI pulls to one side...

    ...when braking.

    Tyres good, pads and discs look good, thinking of bleeding calipers.

    Any other ideas anyone.?

    Tyre pressures even? Same make of tyre on both sides? Its common for them to pull to the left also. Is the tracking ok? Is this under braking, accelerating or just constant speed?

    its pulling to the right under hard braking only, but not all the time. At first the tyres were odd but I swapped the rear matching pair over and it still does the same. Tyre wear looks even so no tracking issue I think.

    how many pistons does each caliper have and are they prone to siezure? I have a yamaha 600 diversion and the pistons on that bike always sieze due to corrosion under the seals.

    One piston mate. Also try the slider bolts on the on the left hand calliper, they tend to get covered in grime.
