My son ran into a tree the last time we rode. He hit the side of the fork and the bike tried to climb the tree. Now the front tire points a little to the left. How do I get it back to factory alignment? I know that I can loosen the triple clamp to move it but do you just "eyeball" the alignment? Could it be the fork and not the triple clamp? The forks are not sticking and seem to have full travel.

Loosen all the fork bolts as well as the steering stem nut. Then sitting on the bike have someone stand in front and hold the front wheel. You then just push/pull the handlebars until the wheel is straight and tighten everything back up. Sometimes it takes some effort to get back inline. I have always just eyeballed it and have never had a problem. I haven't have had to do this to the WRR yet but in 32 years of riding, I have done it to plenty of bikes Very happy .
