I just installed Factory 47 bars (14" Signature).
The problem is that when I'm riding it feels like one side of the bars is higher than the other one.

My questions are...
1) how do I check it out?
2) how do i correct it?

I would do some basic measurements, one being that the bars themselves are square and compare each side of the bar to make sure they are the same. Try measuring from the tip of the meathook to the base of the bar. That should eliminate the bars then. With the wheel pointed straight, find a couple of points on the bars and find a center point on the frame on each side of the bike and take measurements. Then I would check the fairing for mounting variations from left to right or up and down and correct that. The fairing being off, as long as the bars are not somehow fucked up, will give you a feeling that your bars are off kilter. If you come up with goose eggs on that I would seek out a Chiropractor. Good luck, I look forward to hearing your outcome! Awesome bars too, nice choice!

Sometimes if you do not use the proper torque sequence they will be off just enough to tell. Try loosening the 4 clamp bolts and re-torque using the method in the manual.

If it measures out good. Make sure your butt is centered on the seat. This may seem obvious but I see it all the time going down the road.
