Can you be more specific please, how do you mean "I'm out of balance"? Do you mean the whole rig is out of balance when you have massive pan? Well this can be cause of common incorrect dynamic balance setting (monitor/battery distance from centerpost CG with interaction of camera CG). The gimbal by itself can't be off the center,it may be dirty or weared out..

It can actually...That is what makes a great gimbal hard to design. All axis need to collide at the same point, and the Pan bearing neends to rotate around the exact centerpoint of the post.
Also in the long run, everything needs to stay in place.
Imaging how a gimbal like this would perform. First imagine you are trimmed and then pan 90° and let it rest.

Did you mean by that the gimbal can be off the center something like it is possible to produce poorly centered/precision gimbal, or that the first rate gimbal like MK-V gimbal is theoretically prone to go off the axis with some time of heavy use or something?
Yes, the distorted axis gimbal presented by your drawing would be definetly the worst nightmare for any operator do deal with, I guess even with minimal deviations..

It's possible this is specific to my gimbal, but it's a simple thing to try if anyone is having issues.
