2010 Honda CBF125 front end tweaked Hi, My beloved CBF125 dropped in strong winds and now my steering is slightly bent. So when applying the full lock to the right my fingers are squeezed against the fairing, however full lock to the left leaves a gap. I can see that the right side of the handlebar is slightly bent as the paintwork has come away where the bend has taken place. Does anyone have any (cheap!) suggestions as to what options I have to fix this? All responses appreciated. Sach @

Hi, Sach if you have a minor accident, lay your bike down and the front end gets 'TWEAKED" where the front wheel is going in one direction and your handlebars are going in the opposite direction, despair not, there is a quick fix.
1. If your handlebars are turning right turn the front end all the way to the right making contact with the fork stop. Find the 10:00 o'clock position on the front wheel and give it a good swift kick with your foot, put the front wheel in a straight-forward position and eyeball the orientation of the handlebar. Usually, it only takes one or two kicks to get everything back to normal. If you overshoot, no big scare, just turn the front end all the way to the left fork stop and find the 2:00 o'clock position and give it a soft kick.

Continue the process until you are comfortable with the alignment. It's always a good idea to retorque any accessible handlebar riser bolts as well as the upper and lower fork clamps to proper book specs.
