Steering Angle Dragster RR

Good evening,

I'm after a quick favour. I've just had my RR serviced and was informed that my left bar was slightly bent....after inspection it was found When steering to the left the tip of the bar was closer to the side of the tank then when you steered to the right.
So I did some measuring/head scratching, you know the manic thing OCD sufferers do when something isn't symmetrical.
When straight the bars are equal in height/angle all around. So I looked at the head tube/fork bridge bump stops and came up with this.
When the steering is straight it appears there's more of gap between the head tube stop/bridge stop on the left (I'm facing the bike) then there is to the right side, hence the steering will turn more to the left when on the bike.
Can anyone report back if their dragster does this....when I say it turns more it's not a massive amount just a little.

I think the above makes sense, it's been along afternoon.

Not that it would be of any help to you, but I saw sometging similar on a (new to me) B4 2013. When sitting on the bike, stearing to the right is significantly more than to the left. I’ve been contemplating putting a small wedge on the stop to balance the movemeng out.

If the stops are not adjustable, I personally would not worry about it.
Never at full lock while riding, anyhow.
Has the bike been dropped? Forks tweeked?

I can say that my 2015 B3 800RR has the same condition. The bike has not been down. It was noted by the dealer when in for service.

Sure it’s the stops and not an expanded tank?
