thats still cheap. to get someone to straighten would require a rebuild and parts cost that much.

my .02 cents :icon_smile:

If you need your forks straightened. Contact me at 713 304 5509. I send it out and it takes about 7 working days from the time you drop it off to get it back. Charge is about 75.00, but I will inspect it to ensure it can be straightened.

ok...this is ghetto but...

if your talking about the handlebars not being straight with the forks, i used to just roll up the front wheel to a telephone pole and slam it to the side, until i got it perfectly straight...takes a few tries each way...

...i figured it wasnt all that good of an idea, but then this old school sportbiker who had done CMRA forever said he did the same thing...the guy had been riding sport for like 25 years, worked on his own bikes the whole time he raced...figured it coudnt be that bad...

thats probably not what your talking about...and im probably being a n00b, so ill stfu now.
