Is the left tie rod supposed to be dead straight? Mine has a slight bend to it just outboard of the inner end thread. It may have just been hit and bent but I want to be sure before I straighten it. Can't tell by looking at the schematic.
And while I am at it--I am going to replace the steering stem lower bearing. I have the lower bracket removed from the bike and I am stuck on getting the locknut off. There is a special wrench adapter to fit into the daisey fitment. It is N0. 07GMA-HA70200. Does anyone have a work around tool or am I forced to take it in to the Honda shop for that? Thanks
