What's the best way to align the steering etc on a 2nd Gen? I noticed my bike is starting to show signs the front wheel is pointed right while going straight. Never been down. Have hit some nasty pot holes. left side of front wheel is wearing, like it's not riding on center. the bars are pointed slightly right while going straight. Any wisdow out there on how to re-align the front end?

Thanks. I was hoping the dirt bike trick would work. Meaning loosen the clamps and hold the wheel between my knees and twist the bars. It was weird it seemed to do it after some potholes. Noticed my steering damper was pointed right . I'll give it a shot over the weekend.

:thumbsup:

You need to make sure the back wheel is running true to the front, then make your adjustments.
You tube wheel alignment motorcycle
1,Put bike on paddock stand
2,Get some string about 15ft long
3,tie the string around the back wheel.
4, Pull the string to the front of the bike and mark off.

Then you can measure the with a rule how much your wheel is running out.

Basically your front tyre 120 should be bang on in the middle to your 190 rear.
get that right and you in.
