Re: Bent handlebars and twisted chassis (possibly)
Looking down on the bars are the mounts perpendicular with the centerline of the chassis? If not, time to play with the tie rods. While at it, check the toe-in, you want less than a quarter inch.
It's pretty common to have bent bars. 99% of the time it's the left side because people usually roll it over that direction and the handlebar usually gets bent along with the levers. To figure out if they're bent measure from the apex of the bend by the clamps to the end of the bars. The one that is bent down will have a shorter measurement.
