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........

Im thinking if it was the cable, there would be a problem all the time...............

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?
