My bike tracs straight but the bars seem to not be exactly facing forward. Could the forks have slightly twisted in the tripple trees causing this? Is this the reason I'm seeing here that a fork brace is a good thing? Can the local Honda shop take care of this?? Thanks, Greg

The handle bars are literally two pieces, so one could be out of alignment, making it look like the fork isn't point straight ahead, even though it is. Set it up on the centerstand, point it forward, and loosen the bolts bit and tighten them back down.. Technically, they aren't "adjustable", but there might be enough slop to give the eye the wrong impression..
If your fork WERE out of whack, I doubt the bike would track straight..

:) Don't forget about the crown in the road,it will cause the bars to be turned slietly when going straight.
