Off centered rear guard ?

Post  Kiwi650 on Mon Nov 23, 2009 11:28 am

My mate noticed the rear guard is not centered over the rear wheel, I said its probably due to the muffler sticking out so much the off set balances out the rear ? (kinda of)

Your not alone, it has been mentioned on many threads across the net that the rear end of 650r's are bent. People have noticed this on the bikes when they were brand new.
I like to think that Honda take away that first initial "bending" after your first big stack, pre-bent with love from Honda.
If your lookin to fix the bend I'd suggest a massive steel pole to aid in tweaking it left or right, or get a few mates around, a few beers and I'm sure you will come up with some other way to tweak that read end.
