left hand handlebar space

Just curious about the handlebar position. My bike on full lock touches the plastic airduct when I turn left and pinches my fingers. This does not happen on the right hand side? Any ideas?

The Clip-ons (handlebars) are pinned and locked into one position.So if your left bar touches the cover it is either bent or the lock pin is not there.You will have to take the bar off and have a look.Good luck.

Sounds like a starting point. Is it a possibility the bike may have been dropped?

The steering stop, bolted onto the steering stem, is probably bent or broken on one side....an indication the bike fell over at some point.
Available replacement part. The Brutale and F4 are different, F4 allowing less steering movement.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Also if it has clip ons they might be adjusted inproperly. Mine were this way because the PO wanted to make it more short guy friendly.

I have sourced a bar and will change over when arrives. If it doesn't rectify the problem I will be stumped as to what else it might be?

Did you check the steering stop as Ed suggested? If it's not bent the bar should fix your problem.

The steering stop appears to be straight. I will rule out the bar and see from there. Thanks Mick
