pissed tie rod problems

hey so a few months ago i flipped my baby trying to make a hill climb on some moss. the stem was bent for a while and then i was backing up the stem snapped in half. i ordered a houser +1 steering stem and started to put it on today. well it fits well but the tie rods were difficult to get in. i got the right one in but when the bars are straight the tire is turning a little right. the left tie rod i could not even get in the bottom of the stem. i also noticed the tie rod ends on the stem side of the rod were rubbing slightly on the frame. So my questions are. How do you adjust the tie rods properly? and will the tie rod ends stop rubbing the frame after i adjust the tie rods?

We have this thread for steering adjustments.

Make sure the tie rods are of equal adjustment on both ends before you start adjusting or you may run out of bolt. as for the rubbing, is it because the stem rod mount is lower than the stock? need a pic

can you post a pic of it. because it shouldn't be close enough to rub. what part of the frame is it rubbing? we are talking about an XX right? and for your question; there is a locknut on one end of the rod that connects the two tierod ends. loosen that locknut. It may be left hand thread. then with the bars squared up with the bike, turn the center rod to align the front tires with an imaginary center line of the quad. after getting both tires to this point, then you need to measure the toe in to do the final adjustment

Ok ill get some pictures. Yes its a 2008 700xx. And is it best to do this with all four tires on the ground, standing up, what is your suggestion?

on the ground and with a rider of equal weight to you setting on it is the most accurate but just setting on the ground is close enough

also if you havent already read the thread that snoshoe has put a link to above, there is a post in that thread from me that tells how to make a toe in bar and how to use it. that makes this adjustment a little easier to get right.
