I built a offroad cargo leaner.. It tracked straight with no pull..
There was no pull cornering till you run ot of lean..
I found a lead of 10% worked best "on my set up"
A leading link front end is not needed steering weight
did not change... when you set it up have the front mount
higher than the rear then the car will steer in the direction
you turn as the bike leans.. I had the front mount 75mm higher
than the rear.. A longer arc ratio on the front mount..
Have the mount points in line with the wheel centres
of the bike then as the bike leans its not trying to lift or lower
the car & the car weight is not trying to lean the bike...

The only issue with it was I didn't give the bike enough lean..
I'm building anther leaner for my XT660R at the moment...
The first one was really a trial to see if they were any good
Here.... my XR250 leaner side car build
