Sunnyboy,

Caster can be adjusted but to a very minimal adjustment can be made, unless you want to pull back your caster that's another story.

Before doing anything, why not you tell us what's your caster reading? Factory caster measurement is about LEFT/RIGHT 2.33 deg. Normally the caster measurement for LEFT side is higher than RIGHT side due to Malaysia road are design tilt to the left.

*Not may ppl knows how to adjust caster

aiya....forget to take down the caster figure when doing alignment......but the tyre fellow said lari already, and the machine reading also showing that....

i think the caster run off due to accident.....so it's a pull back procedure

any mudguard shop to recommend? since not many know how to adjust....
