Fatboy handlebars crooked?

Anyone notice handlebars slightly turned to the right on Fatboys? I've noticed this on an 08 and an 09 I just demoed. Maybe it's just my glasses playing tricks on me but it sure seems like my right hand is closer to me.

Mine were on my 07, took it back to the dealer and they gave it a big jerk on the bars and back to square they went. Occasionally I have to have a buddy hold the front fender still while I give the bars a push back to straightness. I was told it's the cheap bushings in the tree that causes this

Yep - apparently they slide on the rubber bushings a bit.
My handlebars were the same way and I put the newer bushings on and hd slotted risers on, and my bars looked and felt tweaked, I called the dealer ship and they said, "Give em a nice controlled push against the bar and they set in real nice. Been great ever since

Change to the poly riser bushings and problem goes away.
