Default Please Help!

I recently loosened the 8 hex bolts surrounding the forks to get handlebars straight and the font end sagged down. How do i fix this problem?? How do i get fork braces back up??

If it were me, I'd slide my m/c jack under the bike and just barely lift it to get it level. Loosen the said 8 bolts again then slowly start to lift the bike until the forks find their way to their previous location. They may need some persuasion. Do you have a m/c jack, bet not? You can also find the Warrior Service Manual on site here and follow instructions for fork removal which includes removing the brakes and wheel and fender.

Very simple fix. if you don't have a motorcycle jack, just have a friend hod the bike from tipping and you can use a floor jack. Just make sure the jack is contacting a sturdy location and lift only the front end. If you need too, gently tap the top of the fork with a rubber mallet or soft wood. Additionally it helps if your friend is fairly stout. The mc jack is the best solution if you have one.

Where do you live? There may be some 4m buds that are close enough to give you a hand.

I appreciate all the help! I jacked it up and got them back down. It was a simple fix... just had to work them a little more than i expected.

Be careful not to over torque those pinch bolts on the forks or you can cause yourself a lot of grief such as broken triple tree. When you do torque them , do it by degrees and then recheck because you can have one torqued to spec and then when you tighten the next one , the first one will be loose again.

What is the issue with the handlebars?
