The Handling has Changed...

Ok so I lowsided back in november and the bike only had 2100 miles on it. I just got it back and the steering is a little different. when i go to make a turn it is not as smooth. Now the stealership told me everything was fine when they fixed all that needed fixing. All i need now is a new front rim because it has a few dents in it. Other than that, i got a new back wheel, new engine covers, new left handlebar, new recovery tank, and new fairings. Could anybody have any idea why it doesnt handle the way it used to?

If something was hit hard enough to bend a rim, you may have damaged the steering head bearings. That will cause all kinds of weird feelings and problems.
