Ok, so here's my situation. I have two 06 RRs, one is totally stock and the other is somewhat moded. The one that is somewhat moded (Jessica) was in a low side and got wedged under a guard rail after sliding a little bit on pavement. I was wearing my suit and full gear so I walked away just fine. Suit a little scuffed but nothing bad.
So, I finally got her running again after fixing the right case cover, radiator, clutch cable, rear sets and got some frame sliders which I should have had all along. I rode her for about 20 min and felt a little resistance when I was turning both left and right. Like she wanted to stand up on her own, even tho I was leaning. She rode straight and all, but this was just on cornering. Not really while turning from a stop but on the sweeping turns while at some speed.
I got on my stock RR and didn't feel the same thing. She went where I told her just fine and held there without much fuss.
I look at the forks and they dont appear to be bad at all, no cracks in the frame, however, there was a small scrapped area after the sliding. The clutch cable got caught between the frame and the pavement (see pic of damage). The scrape is very shallow tho. I am sure I could use some 120 grit sandpaper and some rattle can and you'd really need to know it was there to notice it.
My question is, how do shops like GMD Computrack and others test if the frame, forks or tripples are tweeked? Hooked up to a machine? Just eyeball it? Ride her and know from previous experience that she's not quite right?
