if your front forks are out of alignment (not accually bent), you can try loosening the triple trees (where the front end tubes meet the frame and handlebars) and put the front wheel against a solid object, then turn the handlebars the opposite direction of the bend,leaning,out-of-alignment,whatever ya call it,

untill it looks straight,

then re-tighten all the nuts&bolts on the tripletree. that may do it.

It takes alot of force to bend a fork tube, hopefully , that didn't happen, that can be checked with a straight edge.
