Handlebar bent?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!
 
My Fz was knocked over in a parking lot last week. It bent my tail tidy and scraped up the right side a little bit. I noticed that the bar end was pretty badly scraped but when I rode it home that day I didn't notice any difference in my hand position. I took it out yesterday on some twisty roads and noticed it took more effort to lean the bike to the right side so I'm thinking the handlebars got bent forward a little. What are some good methods to tell if the handle bars are bent or not?

It takes surprisingly little force to throw the triple-head alignment off. That's more likely than actually bending the bar.
 
Somebody recently posted a nice little video on what to do but I can't seem to find it.
