Lowside impact--skewed bar limiter?

912 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  70115
Hi, I recently lowsided at 35mph onto the left side.. It was a pretty substantial impact and on top of my concussion, I have to deal with the damage to my bike..

So since I am new to bikes in general I was hoping I could get some advice on what to do..

Here are some cockpit shots with the bars at full lock left and right.. It seems the trapezoidal piece that controls the range of motion has shifted from impact..

Is there any way to fix this?

Any input would be much appreciated!

EDIT: I just found out the part in question is the "steering stop"

Those stops are fine They are either there or the aren't.

Try loosening your upper and lower clamp, put the wheel between your feet and straightening it out that way because it looks like the you may have tweaked your triple tree a little. Its not that big of a deal, its possible that you just have your upper and lower clamp a little out of line. Its pretty common when the bike comes down on the bar like that. You have the bar turning the front wheel into a lever and it knocks things out of line.

Another possibility is that the bar simply a little bent. It can be sneaky and a little hard to tell with the bar on the bike. You can verify by taking the bar and all controls off and setting it on a table if one side stays in the air you are alittle tweaked. Again nothing major just look for 7/8 bars pretty much any will do, there are listings floating around the interwed with your rise and pullback numbers. I was running a pro-taper MX bar for a while.
