There is a long bolt (of which you can only see the head) in the center of the handlebar stem. The nut (which you can't see at all) at the bottom of this bolt is a wedge, that when it is tight keeps the stem tightly wedged inside the tube (that you also can't see) that is the top part of the front fork (which is the two long arms to which the front wheel is attached. Loosen this bolt just a couple of turns, then give it a sharp rap with a hammer or block of wood. This will loosen the wedge without removing the bolt. Make your straightening adjustment and retighten the bolt. Good luck.

provided the wheel and spacers were reinstalled correctly, you can loosen 3 of the 4 the tripple clamp pinch bolts and push the wheel against a wall until straight and retighten, the forks may have had a slight twist and the wheel was holding it straight, when the wheel was reinstalled the axle would pull them back to where they should be

Forks are out of alignment


STAND IN FRONT OF THE BIKE FACING THE HEADLIGHT. STRADDLE THE FRONT WHEEL AND CLAMP THE WHEEL BETWEEN YOUR LEGS. NOW "TWIST" THE HANDLEBARS TO A STRAIGHT POSITION. IT MAY REQUIRE A FEW TWEAKS BUT THE PROCESS IS NOT HARD.

I crashed and need to straighten the steering. The front wheel is turning to the left. How do I re-align the handlebars and front wheel?


First, support the bike so that the front wheel is off the ground. Then, loosen (do not remove, just loosen them) the bolts that clamp the fork tubes into the upper and lower triple clamp braces. Loosen the front axle attachments to the fork legs. Now stand in front of the bike and hold the front wheel between your knees and turn the handlebars until they are straight - and re-tighten everything. Also, check the large nut on top of the steering stem, making sure it is tight.

and when the forks/bars/tripleclamps are straight the wheel goes towards the right. ii think they are twisted or bent. how much do new forks cost?Loosen your front wheel slightly. Loosen your fork clamp bolts on the triple clamps slighty. Hold the front brake lever. Put one leg on either side of the front wheel to keep it from moving. Use the handlebars to turn the front end back straight. Tighten everything back up using a torque wrench and torqueing to the proper values from your service manual. Go ride and have fun. ,
