Coming from a dual sport background, I'm used to wrecking A LOT. More than one of my mishaps have resulted in tweaked forks. There have been times when I've had to hold the handlebars at a 20 degree angle in order to go straight down the road.
It's possible that the forks are bent, but very unlikely I'd say. More than likely they are just a little tweaked. The cure for tweaked forks is a bit of pain, but not too bad really. Actually, it's quite easy except for the fact that it's a hassle to elevate the front wheel off of the ground on the Versys.
The steps are as follows:
- Elevate front wheel (see below for one idea of how to do this)
- Loosen the front axle a bit
- Loosen bolts on the triple tree that hold the fork
- Hit the front tire with a board
- Check alignment of front wheel with handlebars held straight
- Tighten everything up
Hopefully that will get you where you want to be, but if not then I'm sure there will be other valid suggestions of things to check. That is where I would start, though.
As for a method to elevate the bike, I'm fabbing up one of these bad boys
(courtesy of hr100 on the UK forum).
I had to do this procedure a month or so ago. Since I still haven't made the jack, I just used two jackstands and a long metal rod. You just remove the two covers over the footpegs and slide the rod through the open pipe that is in the frame.
Good luck and remember to report back on your results.
