Anyone know if the upper steering shaft is built "square"?

Meaning, should the pinch bolt area be in line with the handlebar clamp area?

I removed the upper shaft on this machine and the pinch bolt area does not align with the handlebar mount. Not sure if the shaft is twisted, or its supposed to be like this. See photo.

Working on a 2020 xp 1K, trying to chase down the cause of a crooked handlebar situation. New bars installed but wheels are crooked when bars are straight.

I removed the tie rods, they are straight and are the same length.

The lower shaft assembly shows no signs of damage (as much as can be seem without removing it). Hoping I don't have to. Seems like it will be a PIA.

Found some photos on ebay and the polaris website.
Hard to tell but, looks like it should be straight.
I pulled the trigger and ordered a new one.
