Hey all, Well, I finally layed it down at the track...nothing big...in a dry sandy corner it just slipped out from under me and I hopped off (well actually I rolled off and layed there for a few seconds cuz I was exhausted and there was nobody on the course) but the point is that when I got back on my bars were bent (or soit seemed) I had a buddy straddle the front wheel and I yanked it back straight but it still seemed off to me... Could I have bent the bars at such a slow speed? And how do I tell for sure? Could it be that I wracked the forks due to loose tripple clamps? Has anyone else noticed that the stock steel bars are whimpy? I have dumped other bikes ten times as hard without this happening... I'm looking at some oversized Renthals but need to buy a top clamp to support them... Just curious if this is a known issue. Thanks as always!!!! ---------- My YZ is an instamatic....just point and shoot!
