Just a quick one. I finally set up my bow tonite,new strings set sight set rest
installed peep and d loop. Whilesetting it up i notice a drastic lean to the idler wheel[tome drastic] but i'm thinking because it's a short axle bow this is normal. is this true? 2010 cheetah 30" ata. when i put new strings on everything matched perfect and brace hieght is good ata is set to specs and tiller is equal just curious

Post a pic this is the best way for us to decide if it is or not.

Sounds like you need to adjust the yoke by shortening the same side as the cable guard with twists. The idler should be in line with the string, ie parallel.

here are pics one at rest and one at full draw. the one at full draw is a little exagerated. my daughter stood behind me and took pic. but it leans about half of what you see at full draw. it looks more like limb twist because of the short ata

That's a good amount of lean, shorten the right side of the yoke(twist the black one). When you release the arrow, you will get better arrow flight if the string is straight in line with the idler wheel.

Measure the ata on both sides. Then as Captjj said twist the black one. About five twists then measure again.

When you are done both sides should be equal in ata. Then at full draw I usually measure the ata again. I have a drawing machine and that helps. But if you don't have some one help you.

ok just got bow packed away for tonite. I just pressed and had to twist yoke 8 twists to get it to be straight at full draw. still some lean at rest but I can't see how i'll get rid of that, cable rollers pull cables out quite a bit. I'll look at the bushing gap tomorrow and see if that was relieved at full draw. I think what your seeing at the spacer is more of the angle the pic was taken
