nope...unless you have a race fairing stay, which you don't since you have lights...your fairing stay is fine...they break/crack...don't bend

What you are seeing is your Triple is bent/not aligned

to fix...fully loosen the lower triple and partially loosen the upper. Put the wheel between your legs/knees..grab the clipons and pull them to line them up with the wheel. Once done...tighten everything back up.

Awesome! Thanks man, so I would guess if I do this and it doesn't fix it, then my triple is in fact bent?

triple or forks...but that doesn't look bad at all..I'm guessing you just need to twist it back to line it up.

Cool, I've noticed that my lights haven't lined up for a while, and I just got some after market fairings from a member on here, and I figured I'd make it line up while I had the front off.

So I'm just going to turn until it aligns up right? And, when doing this will it cause the other one to get outta wack?

Not sure what you mean....both sides should be loose. And when you twist it you will be lining things back up, so no you won't be making something else out of wack.

I meant the lights sorry, the bike has fairings back on it now. Will that affect the realigning of the lights?

No idea. I don't use headlights

It will get the wheel straight. I don't see how it would help the headlights

Any chance you could guide me in lining up my lights with fairings?
