Fist Fall And Ho No What S Going On???

Recommended Posts

HERE we go, ad my first small fall today. it went pretty well, and my friend s said it look really nice. the problem is, it was a very small bike drop really, and for some reason it seems like i have to keep the handlebar a little to one side to go straight... a very little tiny bit. nothing seems bent and i canot imagine droping the bike on it s side will bent the fork or something?? the bike runs very well, no shaking a fast speed. coud t it be that it mouved a bit, is there a way to adjust that?

thanks for your help, can t wait for the next fall:bonk:

The stock bars on the XR-L might as well be made from gouda cheese. Your bars are likely bent, home-slice.

Loosen your lower triple clamps, You may have just twisted your forks a bit. You will hear them as you loosen the bolts.

these things...they are what holds your forks. loosed the bolts and realing your bars and front wheel, no biggie it happens all the time on bikes. Torque them back up and your good. NOW if your bars are bent then thats that you need to change them, take any pads off and look closely to see if its the bars or not

Gettin away from hairy hands and back to bars...

i bent my stock bars on my first fall, they are trash.

Go for higher bars, it's like a whole new bike.

Renthal or Pro Taper all good. I have Pro Taper Windham, nice.
