Centralising the steering column
« on: December 14, 2011, 12:20:11 pm »
I have noticed following a recent ride that my handle bar appears to be a few degrees out to the left, how do i go about centralising the steering or is this a dealer job.

Any advice appreciated thanks.

It only appears to be skew when comparing the handlebars with speedo cluster. If you have a closed look, you will see the front shocks align 90 degrees with handlebars (@ ignition area). I don't know the history of your bike, so there might be another problem. If so, rather take it to the dealers.

I get the same problem sometimes

It feels like the left side of the handlebar is slightly nearer to me

Just above the front fender the is that big clamp thingmabob with 4 bolts

Maak die boude bietjie los

Ek hou die wiel met my voete vas en twist dan die handlebar 'n bietjie en toets dan maar weer.
