Things to add:

I use tiedowns to hold the bars straight.So no chance of movement when adjusting.
On the gold rod , one nut is right hand thread and one is left hand. so take care when loosening the locknuts.
I set mine at 6mm toe in ,but this my preferance and if the manual say's 0mm . Set it to 0mm.

When I first got my xx home the bars felt out of wack. I knew the prior owner rolled it and replaced the bars. but after a non manual tear down the OEM shaft had a 10 deg bend near the top. After a few wacks with a 10 lb hammer it was a little straighter but the tube walls are thin and now slightly flat. I ended up supporting it with some 2x4s and straightened it out to about 1 deg. Then a small ball peen hammer to fix the flats, reassembled and "good as almost new"

So my brother ran my atv in to a tree and bent the sh!t out of my stem and bars. I bought a new set of bars from member Seabass on here (great guy, good purchase) and a new steering stem from Mrcycles.com (http://goo.gl/e40WM), #3 which in the picture appears to be the correct part. The part that I received, however, was quite different from the correct part.
I take off the plastics and the headlight, and look at my stem. I look at the replacement I bought, then look back at the stem. This is what I see:



The stem is very different from the one in the picture, and the actual one on the bike. It's about 5" shorter than it should be, and it's missing the entire steering limiter and mounting points for the tie rods. It also has these bolts welded to it (circled in red) that are not present on the stock stem. I'm not too pleased right now. I live in canada and getting this thing was a hassle, and any inconveniences are going to be quite difficult to resolve.
I think I will be able to take the stem out and weld it back true at school, but I will possibly need an extension of some sort like coolkev25 did. I dont know what tubing I'll need to do that but I should be able to figure it out.
Anyone have any thoughts? I'm pretty rattled about this whole deal, its pretty inconvenient.

Great write up, man. Maybe this is why my left tire rubs the nerd bars slightly when I have the bars cranked all the way. �� Ya think?
