Hi, dropped my R3 about a week ago and it looked like there was only a bit of fairing damage, nothing major. However recently i've noticed that the front end of the bike is not in line with the front tyre.

The handlebars seem straight (tyre is straight when handlebars are straight) but looking down the front forks from the top of the bike, the gap on the left side to the body of the bike is larger than the right by a couple of cm's.

Not sure if the bike was like this before :|

Are your forks aligned? They can shift in a low side. With out seeing pics I dont think many of us can say much.

Not sure if the forks are aligned, but it was a low side. Took some pics, but you can't really see the issue with them.

Taking the bike in for it's first service on Monday so I'll let the mechanic know.

Thanks.
