Uneven handle bars
I got some replacement handlebars (new) following a low speed crash that bent the right side of the handlebars. The handlebars still seem a little lower on the right, but not positive. I put the bike up on a rear stand and centered the front wheel (by sight) and measured the distance from the top of each side of the handlebar to the ground. The right side was a few mm's lower. I checked to see if the ground was level, it was pretty darn close, not totally perfect, but close enough that I don't expect that to cause a difference in measurement. But just in case, I turned the bike around and measured again, the right side of the handle bar still appeared a few mm's lower than the left. I checked the forks for alignment, and they appear to be properly aligned. I don't notice any pull to one side or the other, and I don't see any signs of stress anywhere on the triple tree or signs that the fork's got knocked out of position within the triple tree.
Any thoughts on what/how to check for level handle bar height? If one of the forks got knocked out of position within the triple tree, could that affect the handlebar height on one side? Should I just take her in to the shop and get her checked out?
Another thing I noticed is that with the motowerks anti-vibe bar riser, there is some very slight movement when I push straight down on either side of the handlebar. I didn't notice this before. I'm pretty sure all the bolts are secure. Is this part of the anti-vibe aspect of the riser or do I need to look a little further into that?
