If you have a bent steering shaft it should be pretty obvious by just turning it and looking at it. It really is very difficult to bend that piece.

I checked mine with a lazy susan..Just put it on something that will turn and give it a spin. if it's bent you'll see a wobble at the top end (Threaded end). (Poor Mans Micrometer)
Hope this helps...

I appreciate the help. How do you get the steering shaft off. Is it threaded onto the tripple clamp? I'd like to try the freezer trick.

Is the Stem Bent?
If So you're going to have to replace the lower clamp....$289.00 from Yamaha. This is one piece of hardware that I wouldn't mess around with. Inspect it for cracks very closely. You would not want to loose your front end, coming off a big double, or worse yet a big tabletop.

When it cools it shrinks the race and it falls out.
