    One other consideration. You mention you changed out the bars for some T bars. Are you sure THOSE were welded up straight? Could possibly be that they are tweaked, not the front end.
    Shop did the lower tree, I never personally have. As for bars, I'll take a closer look, just know they're new....

    are you using Rubber Bushings with your Riserless Bars? could also be a issue. being worn or one side tighter than the other. Hopefully the "Shop" knew what they were doing and you can focus on your bars before tackling somthing that might be beyond your ability with the forks lol

    I guess i am confused on how you cannot see the "tweak" when the bike is sitting still but you can see it when you are moving???

    Sorry I was unclear guys. Thanks much for the suggestions and your time. I think the bars are slightly off perfect.

    Along with what others are saying....what I usually would do if nothing was bent, just slightly off is:

    loosen the pinch bolts on both the upper and lower trees. (personally I would leave the wheel/axle alone)

    have a buddy stand over the front wheel and hold it tight between their knees, or better yet, lock the wheel in a chock. Or hold the wheel between your own knees.

    grip the handlebars and twist to get the wheel and bars in line.

    tighten pinch bolts.


    Also agreed, new riser bushings are always a good thing too.
