So I finally noticed my un-aligned front wheel. I always noticed a slight angle on my bars but I assumed the tank wasn't on straight or something. Between the right fork and wheel is there supposed to be a collar or spacer? I just have the axle rod to a rubber bushing in the wheel.
I took everything off at work and I could swear something is missing to make the forks twist or something. Nothing has any marks of a bend and no welds have stress cracks or rust so what's up here. I'll post pics later.
I have that collar, i got the new one and when i took the wheel off it was already in place. I have everything pictured but it still is cocked at an angle.
So i ask, wtf could possibly make the wheel point?
I noticed on the right fork it is free to slide about even with the bolt through it to lock it in place. Not a lot of room to move but i dunno. I just tightened it down to where some of the axle shaft sticks out.
Maybe i do infact have a bent triple tree and somehow just can't notice this.
Give me things to look for and i'll take a crap load of pics. I can't figure this out and i'm at my whits end.
As far as straightening I know what you are talking about and I could do that. I think I may try to take the fork tubes with me and inspect for trueness. I know the wheel spins free with no side to side movement. So out goes the axle.
