Re: Gsxr 1000 k2 weirdness?????
Do you need to apply constant pressure to the bars, in order to go straight? If it was just that the clipons were not properly aligned, but the front frame was otherwise fine, you should be able to go straight and upright, as long as you keep in mind not to force the bars straight. In other words, the bike should want to go straight when ridden hands-off at some speed. (Do not try this with a suspect frame though, or, at least, let go of the bars very slowly and cautiously and keep your hands really close).
If the bike wants to turn and you need to apply pressure, in order to go straight, then something must be misaligned in the front frame. In any case, going straight at a lean is physically impossible, as far as I can see, unless you're riding on a banked road where's it's necessary. The only force that could possibly balance out gravity and keep you from falling over, would be a sideforce at the wheels, which would make you deviate from a straight path. The only way I can think of, to (seemingly) go straight at a lean, would be for both wheels to be misaligned with the frame, having the proper amount of lean.
I find it more likely, that something else is going on though. Perhaps the front wheel's axis is not entirely horizontal for some reason?
