Did you clean both rotors with brake cleaner? If you did you may need to bleed the left side.

heh. Only time mine pulls either way is it depends on which way the road is sloped or which way my steering wheel is turned to.

Used to pull very much to the left though until I rebuilt my passenger side brake caliper. Cheaper than buying a whole new caliper. lol.

I keep my tire pressures a little higher on the right side than my left to counter the slope in the road though.
