falling into turns

Well i have been trying to get adjusted and love my mv but i have a small problem. I feel like the bike is trying to fall into the turns and is not neutral. What could be the cause of this. I am running the stock diablo corse tires and tire pressure is about 36psi. I have varied the tire pressure from 30 all the way to max of 38 and this does not change the feeling. Low speed and high speed turns all feel wierd. I am starting to think maybe it is just me but i don't think so. Also after the tires heat up and i am rolling at a good pace say 80 in a straight line the rear tire feels like it is kinda slidding around not planted. So does anyone have any ideas or maybe i am just imagining things.

Also this is a weird request but if anyone is around the Waldorf Md area that has an mv 750 maybe you could ride my bike and i ride yours just for a second to see if there is a difference.

Are you running 180/55's in the rear? They help the falling in.... if 190/50's, then they should fall less.... at least that is how my brute vs. F4 feel..... i liked the falling in so got 190/55's on the brute instead of 50's.

i think i know what you're talking about. mine kinda does the same thing. i think it might be normal. you push on your peg and it just falls into the turn, right? try lowering your rear suspension and it should take a bit more effort to turn-in. i could be wrong, tho.

Ok so this is somewhat normal. This is not a comfortable feeling. I am running the 190 on the rear. I will try working on the rear suspension.

How many miles are on the tires? A rear tire that gets squared off due to heavy wear in the center will definitely make the bike feel like it wants to fall in. Have you checked the suspension sag?

Every MV 750 I've ridden felt like that: mine, my friends', the demo bikes. Especially at low speed. It was pretty disconcerting at first. I remember trying to fix it but coming up short. I just got used to it.

I'll add that the 1000 doesn't feel that way, for some reason.

I know it may sound simple, but check the setting on your steering damper. Your issue sounds like a it may be set a bit too hard. Loosen it all the way and give it a try. If the problem goes away, tighten it two clicks at a time until you feel it again, and then go back one click.
Also, remember that these bikes are designed to take steep turns. The feeling you are experiencing may simply be the suspension "setting" into the turn. If you have not leaned a bike at speed before, this may be a little unnerving at first.
Good luck, mate.

Could just be your ride height is too high, wheres your suspension at? Unless you know set your suspension to stock and do your static sag and take it from there, it's best to star from scratch and keep track of all the adjustments you make.

Also has the rake been adjusted??? I'm not sure what the settings go to and from on the 750 but this may also be something to look at.
