Couple of wheelie problems

I know that almost all roads tilt to the right slightly to let water drain off but im thinking that shouldnt be enough to steer my wheelies right especially since i am trying to compensate with my body weight to the left. Nevertheless they are still going slightly right. Is it because my exhaust is on the right and it naturally pulls me to the right or is it the right tilt of the road or both? It could be that my rear tire isn't perfectly straight? I have tried to adjust the rear wheel but dont want to overadjust it and then screw up the bikes cornering dynamics. Anyone run into this problem? Also, If one of my front shocks has fluid on the piston at the bottom, does that mean I have blown my seals. It happened after I came down too hard on a wheelie so I assume i need to have it rebuilt? Any Idea how much that might cost?

Yeah its a little slanted but man I try to steer the other way with my body but maybe i just need more practice. So you dont think the weight of the exhaust is pulling me right? I usually do them on the beltway feeder or I-10 feeder.

i say get a stunter and learn the right way.

but the reason why you are not able to steer the bike is because you not far enough back and you not using your rear brake yet.

ill say this much get in the lot before ya wreck cause that what will happen next
