Post chopping turning at slow speeds

I don't know what is happening. At slow speeds, I am now having trouble turning left. It's been going on for a while now. Like it could lock up when I'm going left. It could be common. I keep looking for something physical blocking it. I see nothing. Is it a steering fluid problem maybe?

choppy^

Check your tire…..may have something in it like a screw or something…..there is no steering fluid on bikes….if it were the rotar, it would do it turning both left and right I would imagine….other that that maybe a bad wheel bearing…….

yeah, looking over my 750 this morning it would seem likely that the front brake cable could snag on the radiator cover when steering to the left.

seems odd that the brake rotor is on the left; on my scooter the rotor is on the right so it doesn't have a convoluted route to the brake lever
