I have heard some tips at the track for trying to get an idea if your forks/frame are tweaked before you have to hit computrack. I know that is the only way to really know...but aren't there some tests you can do with a string or a 2x4 or something to get an idea?
You put the 2x4 on the swing arm to the fork or something?

After I stripped down the R6 and found more wrong than I anticipated - the forks are not looking too hot, and with all my track woes I am suspecting that the frame may be tweaked. I cannot tell by looking - but my bike bounced pretty well on the front there.

I had an expert rider take it out last year and he nearly high sided in 3's exit @ Summit (where I eventually did) and he said my suspension was not good (stock) - anyway, I am planning on getting the rear re-done ASAP - but wanted to do a little check on the frame/forks just to make sure.

Thanks for any tips.

I'm sure theres a way to do what you need but hell if I know what it is! lol.

You could always do the "major" check @ computrack http://www.gmdcomputrack.com/

Costs some beans but you'll know the real deal.
