    Is the rod bent again? was it tracking straight before and after the toss? if it was Id check the sponsons for tightness along with the intake grate and ride plate........

    i never got 2 check 2 see if the rod is bent again but it only happens when ure at top speed the steering just turns on you and u get tossed i have been thrown off once lucky me i slowed down alil b4 i got tossed and a second time riding in light chop but i managed to hold on dat time my bike did a 360 i thought it was my sponsons after i got tossed,but i guess i gotta change the cable just 2 b safe and then check the sponsons out its unsteady at high speeds so..

    Did it turn the same direction both times? Which way does it turn?
