SV1000s out of center

Hi,

My recently bought second hand bike has something I don't like... My autistic is showing up and I want to fix it.

The right footrest assembly on the rear is more to the inside as the left one. Probably coming from a little tip-over...
This results in pipes that are not centered and specially the footrest itself not being centered.
However, looking online to some pictures, I found many bikes with exactly the same… So is it OEM that the footrests are not centered?
If not I need to fix this.

I tried bending the assembly, but that is just not possible... at least not with my tools...
I tried to bend the chassisplate that holds the footrest to the outside, but no movement…

If it should be centered I probably will end up buying a new tail end chassis part and new footrest.

Could you guys tell me your footrest are centered or not?
In attach my blue bike, and another one I found on the net. Both seems to have the same issue...

Symmetry and OCD - It’s a good thing!

Just looked at my exhaust can hangers. They appear to be cast aluminum which doesn’t take well to bending, in my experience. Wonder if the subframe (the square tube the hanger hangers from) is bent or twisted? Perhaps you could remove both of them and compare. Maybe you’ll be able to put them in a vise, add some heat and GENTLY bend them back to symmetry.

Best of luck!

I tried bending in a vise... not possible... you are correct when you say the problem could come from the seat frame tube...

The left side has drive chain, right does not. It is the way that it is.

My bike looked the same.
The footrest hangers are not the same shape because the chain and chain guard that has to fit there.
On the other side is no obstacle so the factory placed the hanger closer to the frame and this makes the mufflers to stay one closer than the other to the swingarm.
Never bothered me...i had original mufflers and after a while Yoshis and both sets were like that.

I think in the post 03 bikes, this was more obvious, or accentuated, as the subframe was lower on the bike, and the
cans sat differently as well compared to the 2003 bikes..

Never really was something i noticed too much on my copper chopper.... (not copper now though)
