Gixxer Pulls right on wheelie

Hey, I got a 2001 gixxer 1000 about a month ago, It pulls heavy right when I try to pop a wheelie, sittings are worst that stand ups.

lets say im on the highway, I lift it from the left lane, and I have to let go after ~10 seconds cause i'm in the right lane heading for the railguard.... Its not a wind problem, ive tried many times wherever the wind is coming from or the grooves in the asphalt. I had a 750 before, never had that problem

I've aligned the wheels using a rope to make sure they are both inline. they werent, they were a little off, now its fine, but still pulls, im going to change the sprockets and chain on the bike next week, could that be the problem ?

thanks for your replys

Could be your technique. Are you turning the front at all? Do you lean right without realizing it? The vertical alignment might be off, meaning one side of the swingarm is higher than the other. Don't know how to make an adjustment there. Don't believe that the sprocket or chain would play a role.
