I run CII's front & back on my '08. I noticed on my first set, If my rear tire isn't aligned just right, my front seems to wander like described above. My solution, be careful - On a nice flat straight road, I get up a little speed and loosen my grip on the handlebars and feel which way it's pulling. I go back to my shop and adjust my rear wheel the opposite direction it was pulling and go out and try it again. Usually after a couple of adjustments, I can ride hands free if I feel like it.
When your rear wheel is tracking straight the front seems to quit roaming around. VERY IMPORTANT - when adjusting your rear wheel for straight tracking, don't forget about proper belt tension.
Now when I buy a new set, I loosen only one adjuster, that's all needed to take the rim/tire off the bike. When reinstalling, I only need to tighten that one side, and when the tension is right, I'm ready to ride.
An Old Metric rider guy told about how to set the tracking in this manor, it's a bit time consuming, but my bike tracks down the road perfect.
