I bought an 01 T-bird that was dropped from a dead stop by it's first owner who forgot to put down the kickstand when he dismounted. The left handlebar was bent about half an inch lower than the right (there's also a small turn-signal shaped dent in the left side of the tank just in front of the badge and the left side of the rear fender has a slight bow which I can probably straighten by hand). I replaced the bent stock bars with a new set of Biker's Choice "European" bend bars today. I also ordered riser adapters to get the proper height I needed for the controls to clear the tank when turned lock-to-lock. The new bars do clear the tank, but the left side now sits about 3/4 of an inch from the the top of the tank at full lock and the right side sits about 1 1/2 inches from the top of the tank when at full lock. What gives? Is this normal or do I have another problem that I need to fix? The old stock bars are indeed bent about half an inch lower than the right (I laid them flat on the work bench and it's readily noticeable) but I would have thought that the new bars should have fixed the problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
