Max Pulls to the Right (or Left)

Max Pulls to the Right (or Left)

When a MAX ATV is veering in one direction constantly, the usual suspect is unequal tire pressures resulting in one or two tires being over-inflated, and therefore larger, than the tires on the opposite side, which effectively changes the gearing on one side of the vehicle.

First make sure your pressures are all equal. If the veering is still present, then take a flexible measuring tape and measure the outer circumference of each tire – you may find one is stretched out and slightly bigger than the others. You will then have to compensate by adding a little air pressure to the other tires in order to make them all equal size.

There is no transmission adjustment per-se that controls veering tendencies – but it is possible the brake bands are out of adjustment making lever travel throw or required force on the levers unequal, so I have attached the brake band adjustment instructions for your transmission. I have also included the T20 transmission manual for further reference.
