Ask MO Anything: Did I bend the frame of my motorcycle?

Dear MOby,

I dropped my precious new Triumph Speed Twin as I was coming to a stop the other day (don’t ask), and when I picked it back up, everything was unscathed, to my great relief, except for a scratch on the end of the left handlebar.

Your triple clamp connects your forks to the Motorcycle, and sometimes a whack on a handlebar is enough to slightly misalign the top clamp with the bottom one.

This is a high-end set of triple clamps, but the same idea as your Street Twin’s.

The lower clamp is the one with the steering stem pressed into it, which sticks up through your bike’s steering head.

Once the fork tubes are able to move just a smidge, you should be able to waggle the handlebar back into alignment.
