05-06 zx6r triple tree fitment issues


I purchased a rough condition zx6r with the intentions to fix it up, so I knew going into this there would be problems. But there's a problem with the triple tree I haven't run into before.
I noticed once I started working on the bike that the steering lock didn't catch. Looking at it, I can see the pin that comes out of the lock and sticks into the groove in the frame isn't lined up. I also then noticed there is a gap in the fitment of the center stem and the frame. From what I can tell it's tight, but still isn't seated properly or something? Is this something I can adjust, or buy a used triple tree for like $30 and see if that fixes the problem?

Pics included to give you a better visual!

Steering lock. Hard to tell, but it's sitting too high in relation to the groove it sits in when locked.

Thanks for any help!!!
