Talking about the front tires being out of alignment, I have noticed mine are out of alignment as well. I first noticed my scooter was pulling to the right just a little and thought that it might have been a low tire, but that was not the case. That is when I noticed the tires are toed out on both sides. So I called the dealership, since the scooter is only one day old, and asked them if the tire were supposed to be like that and they told me that they were. They said they will be toed out to about an inch. I asked why, and they said that is the way Honda does builds them. They said Honda told them it makes it steer easier. I can say this, my tires are going to be toed out long because I can't stand it. I guess you could call me picky.
