Wee pulls to the left

Hello! My Wee pulls to the left when I let the handlebar go, I have to lean a lot to the right to keep it straight. I also having some trouble to keep it in straight line, seems to have a very slow weave. Steering bearing are not tooo tight or loose and turn smoothly. Wheel bearing are fine, bike is a 2011 Wee with 5000 miles. OEM tire in good condition. Rear wheel adjusted to have sprockets lined, mark on swingarm are pretty close, I assume rear wheel is centered. Bike is stock except a fork brace. It has done it for the last 1000 miles was fine before. Never dropped it. Rear shock full preload, front fork OEM setting (3?) 210LBS no luggage or topcase. How can I improve it?
Thank you!

My Pleasure!!!

It took me about 6 months to figure it out and before that I tried almost everything else. I'm glad it was of help to someone else!

Tom - can you clarify the steps you took to loosen the forks and undo the large nut on the triple-tee? Mine is a 2014 Wee that just started pulling left after replacing the front and rear tire. I've checked the alignment and it is pretty darn spot on so want to give this a try. From what I can tell the steps are:
1. Slacken the fork clamp bolts
2. Slacken the fork top bolt
3. Unscrew the steering stem nut
4. Tighten steering stem nut (90 Nm)
5. Tighten fork top bolts (23 Nm)
6. Tighten the fork clamp bolt (23 Nm)

I'm assuming that we wouldn't loosen the bottom fork clamp bolt since we're not disassembling or changing oil. Was there anything else that you recall doing to fix this?
