Bandit GSF 650 S Fairing off centre

Hi there,
I recently bought an as good as new Suzuki Bandit GSF650 S as my first bike. The price was really good and the bike only had 3900 km on the clock.

Although I looked at the bike in detail before agreeing to buying it, after bringing it home I noticed that the entire front fairing as well as the clocks seem to be weirdly off center. They seem to be tilted to the left so that when the handle bars are straight, it almost looks like they're turned slightly to the left.

The whole bike looks as new and hasn't got a single scratch on it. However, this off center fairing just seems odd. Could this indicate some kind of problem? I noticed no problems riding the bike - the bike acts totally normal and is well balanced.
Just wondering if maybe a previous owner took off the fairing and mounted it on again incorrectly? I tried taking the fairing off today to see if I could adjust it, but didn't get very far.

Any advice or thoughts much appreciated.

Hi trichter2005

How old is the bike?

Have you any service history of the bike?

Did you ask the seller if the bike had been involved in any accidents?

Did you buy dealer or private?

How long ago is recent?

A picture or two would help showing the problem.
