    bent lower triple clamp?

    just got the r6 forks in for my fz6 project, the fz6 has been wrecked and the forks were bent, the new forks seem straight, but when I put them in the bike the LH fork seems to point down at a steeper angle than the RH fork, and when I assemble the font end it seems to point the wheel to the left with the bars straight. Im still waiting for the r6 brakes to come in, but Im a bit wary of taking it out on the road like this
    Ever heard of this before? can the triple clamp bend in that way?

    Nope, always seen a new lower triple installed. GMD mightbe able to straighten a triple...not sure.

    Sorry, just saw this thread. I can straighten most clamps, I need both triple clamps, both forks and the axle. $80 NESR price, about 2-3 day turn around.
