    Take a pic of your bike on the stand. Side shot. We can tell you what to do after that.

    By "ball head" do you mean worn out? If so, that is probably a big part of it.

    How are you trying to leave on the bike? If you are just revving and hitting, it is going to spin.

    What do you weigh and what gearing? Street or Track?

    Ballhead is a shinko round slick.

    Tire psi a.d suspension isprobably your issue. Bike isn't at the correct stance.
