I have always had to wiggle my handlebars to lock the Yammie. Harley needs a padlock, go figure.
My bike is a 2018 CB500XA - basically the same bike as yours - and the lock will engage properly all the way to the left stop. Seems unlikely that something got tweaked in such a minor fall, but I guess something could have happened....
So I'm think something must have gotten turned or twisted when the bar end hit the pavement. Any thoughts or opinions if anything is damaged internally? Thanks very much.
My XS400 Yamaha got knocked over at the ferry dock. So I have been through the routine. About $250 worth of bits.Thanks for all the advice everyone. I'll check for additional damage on the RHS per UK. Thanks again. :thumbsup:

Steve, I experienced the same winds and came this close (I'm holding my thumb and forefinger very near each other!) to riding to work that day. I'm glad I didn't!To lock them now I have to turn the bars a few centimeters to the right and then they'll lock. It definitely wasn't like that before the fall. The bars were locked when it fell and it looks like the entire impact was on them and nothing else.
What do you think? Are they just trying to make some money off of me? It's the dealership where I bought it and they've treated me really well so far. They've been in this area for over 60 years and have a really good reputation so I'm probably going to let them check it out.
I am glad some of you never got to line up any of my bikes for the track. And super pleased you are nowhere near my side car.
