Yeah i wanted to do this but the whole over torquing things scares me.
I got it checked out yesterday and I was told the forks are good , the front wheel just needs to be straightened.
When I ride it, it doesnt fell TO BAD, but when I had other experienced drivers ride it, they said it feels real uncomfortable to drive. Gonna get it in the shop tomorrow if all goes well.
Thanks!

heard it was windy and then when the truck came the wind was gone which cause you to lean in a little farther and then you stood the bike up. wasn't there so don't know for sure.

Just replacing the fork tubes would be pricey with new OEM parts...It could be anything up there, bearings, fork tubes, wheel, axle issues. Ultimately that bike likely went down, and probably pretty hard. It should be checked out thoroughly by a pro before you get on it.

A non-worthy supersport with an inexperienced rider is a recipe for DISASTER


More free advice - take the MSF course, and spent as much as you can on some gear.
