front wheel pulling left under braking
can't figure this out - under braking ( disk ) the front wheel snaps to the left. Hub seems fine, spokes are tight and true - fork (Fox FX80) seems to want to twist ??? HELP

    1) Check your headset for play or more than likely bearings / cartridges require replacements. If it had play, the cartridge may be warped or worse...rusted

    2) Fork - adjust rebound or pressure, it maybe digging in too quickly.

    Good luck and Just Ride
