Left Handlebar Touches Tank

Hey everyone!

I was in an accident about a month ago and just got back on my bike yesterday. Everything felt fine, except that when turning my bars all the way to the left, they touch the tank. Has anyone else had this issue, or might know what it is? I was thinking the steering head might be out of spec, or the handlebar lock might have broken off in the crash. Any help would be great! Thanks!

1. There is only 1 handlebar.

2. What year is your bike?

3. If you inspect around the bottom part of the neck you will find the bump stops and will see if it's broken off. I'm betting the handlebar is just bent.

It's a 2007, I will check when I get home and see if the stop is broken.
