    So far, I am trying to decide between Truro Motorsports or The Cat Shack, but I am open to other suggestions. I need my throttle looked at, and an oil change (I may just do the oil myself if I feel the price is too high.)

    Thanks!

    Randy at Truro Motorsports is Top Notch. He’s also a Kawasaki Dealer. If I were near Truro, I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

    I am bringing her in Tuesday morning, *fingers crossed* that the forks are OK, and I only need new bars!

    How’d it go from throttle to forks?

    Dumped the bike and it has affected the throttle? Overthinking is my diagnosis from many kms away.

    Well, I agree I am likely overthinking it, but I just want t make sure all is well with the front end.

    Nothing wrong with checking but unless you hit something while moving the forks are likely unaffected. Natural resting place for a two wheeled vehicle is on its side. Bark busters or a similar product help to protect the lever/throttle bits when this inevitably happens.

    First bike? First dump? If yes anxiety is a normal human condition. After awhile you get back up and realize it is just a machine then try and learn from it...again.

    First bike, dump #10 or so, lol. This was my hardest off with the biggest load (100 lbs or so). I had just read somewhere that forks/alignment should be checked for damage etc. and I don't really know anything about forks, it took me a couple of rides to figure out the bars were bent. I've got some big trips coming up so a second set of eyes that know what to look for seem like a good idea.

    Update: So my triple clamp was out of alignment. The shop fixed it and the burr on the end of the bar for $60, quite happy.
