Default Front tire alignment question.

My wheelie crash made my bike track weird. Almost positive its its a few degrees to right. Is there a left/right alignment adjustment? Or are my forks cashed....

You might have just tweeked the fork tubes in the triple trees. the best thing to do is loosen the bolts and if so they should straighten back up.

Easy way is to whap the side of the wheel against a tree etc to move it back to center. Loosening centering, and re-torquing the triple clamp bolts is the best way, but in the woods there are plenty of trees to smack it back straight.
