My bike likes to dart side to side at the big end of the track, I just installed spindle mount wheels and tyson drag arms. is it something in the suspension geometry or is it the skinny front tires? Where should the front toe be set? I have it toed in just a hair right now.

Front shocks may be a tad too soft also tranferring too much weight forward when you let out of it.

Setting the caster so its negative will help alot.

Set the toe-in to zero. You're going straightline so no need for a fast front end with any toe-in.

I have just been to lazy to build a set. I am thinking it will have them this weekend!
now that it shifts and the clutch does not slip I think I will be in the mood to mess with it again.

I strap the handle bars os they cant turn, then I mark each tire front and rear in the same spot both tires, I then take a tape measure and measure the front distince between the tires mark to mark, then I measure the rear distance mark to mark. it will be at zero when both front and rear meaurements are the same.
