    I have a new 09 FLHR and when I ride on a long flat surface it appears that the nacelle and the handlebars are cocked about a 1/4" to the right making the left handlebar a little further away than the right one. Not a big difference but it is noticable to me. I went to the troubleshooting section here and I do have the manual. I do not believe it is the handlebars being off center. On a bicycle this is a real easy fix, just loosten the head stock place the wheel between your knees and give her a little twist, retighten the nuts and you're off. Is this something the dealer should fix? Do they have a tolerance?

    I have noticed the same thing on my 09 FHLX but haven't bothered looking into it. Glad you brought it up and Glider had, as always, a ready fix for it.
