Bent Bars

So I bought my 18 GSX-S750 brand new off the showroom floor. I couldn't shake the feeling that my bars were bent. I swapped them out to some Renthals but I'm not liking the sweep and width so I'll swap them out eventually but... I looked at my stock bars today and they looked off. I measured the sweep and one side has 1/2" more sweep than the other side. No wonder I always felt like something was off with them. So either they were manufactured that way or someone dropped my bike before I owned it. Weird.

I would just take the bars back to the shop you bought the bike from and ask them for a replacement.

Yeah, might be worth a try. Bike has almost 3,000 miles on it so I bet they would give me some “well how do we know you didn’t bend them” bullshit.

They might but itís worth a try.
I bought a brand new bike one time and the adjuster on the brake was slightly bent I was thinking
The same as you but they didnít even argue about it just replaced it.
