Not sure what to call this part. But I noticed on the bike I recently purchased that these slots aren't lined up, should they be? Is this something that needs to be addressed?

This is on a 1998 ST2.

Thanks.

This is a good topic...

I was always under the impression that the steering head and the triple clamp should be at a 45 degree offset from each other.

Basically that if they are too close, you get too much pinch, and at 90 degrees there is too much stress.

What have others seen/heard?

My old ST was 45 degrees, but my new one is like the picture above.
