After my crash a few weeks ago I'm moving forward with the fixes on the 790.

Unfortunately I found out that I don't have a bent handlebar but a twisted frontend.
I.e. the wheel is turned some 3-5 degrees to the left when the top triple tee is perfecty perpendicular to the frame.

The forks don't look bent and I was able to drive back from the track 110km as long as I kept the handlebars slightly turned to the right.
There is a way/process/sequence to try to get the wheel aligned again?

TIA

First thing I would try is loosen lower triple clamps on fork legs, bounce front end vigorously, tighten lower triple clamps, then repeat this with the upper triple clamp. See if it improves. If not you will need to remove the forks and examine everything carefully for distortions

Didn't improve and no real time to work on it further... duke in the hands of the dealer's mechanic.
Fingers crossed
