My handle bars are a little off. Can anyone tell me how to align them back up?
It was like that when I purchased it. Did not notice until I got homeHow long have they been that way?
If it happened since you purchased it you need to inspect all the components in the steering to see if any of it is damaged.
To adjust it without causing any other problems you need to turn each tierod the same amount to straighten them out

I don’t think everyone understands. The wheels are in alignment, it’s the handlebars that are a little off from when you are sitting on it. Kinda like when your bicycle handle bars are not straight with the front wheel. You just hold it between your legs and twist it.It is adjusting each wheel in and out with the tie rod. Nothing real fancy. But I have not had very good success. There are a few different methods out there. And a few here have had good success with their method.
Both of my machines were off. Seems to be a little more common than you would think.
Pretty much already explained above. Put your handle bars straight, ratchet strap them in place to the rack so they can't move, then go adjust your tie rods until your wheels are straight.Can you tell me how? I would like to straighten them up. I’m in the military and the Army has made me anal about crap like this.
I find just the opposite, I find perfectly straight is best. I always find darting around on the trail happens with toe in and out.Not quite straight - it requires a little toe-in. Otherwise it will dart around on the trail. Kinda jump a few more inches than where you aimed. This can cause you to hit things like rocks. Those rocks can cut sidewalls. And you can ruin a ride. And gouge a wheel. And ruin a brand new tire. Lol!
Watch the You Tube videos on getting it just right. The principal is simple. I struggled to find “aligned” and noticed it took more toe in than I expected.
I know you got a lot of reply's. I do mine on two of them every so often as there used almost daily. I use a long stick or straight edge aligned with the back wheel. Make sure your handlebars are straight. Now, adjust the tie rod ends so the wheels are towed in anywhere from 1/8" to 1/4" relative to the back wheel each side. Take a few minutes. Rough riding makes these go out.My handle bars are a little off. Can anyone tell me how to align them back up?
