take the wheel off.... and reinstall... torque to spec if it is still off then you need a new wheel or axel.... i wouldn't Fauk around with something like that due diligence is required with something like that

If the wheel isn't pointing straight when the bars are,take a good look at everything.If you can't see any broken or bent parts,loosen the clamps and the axle and line it back up.torque it all back in place and see what happens.

Damn how big of a gate are we talking about. On trail bikes sometime it's the handlebar and not the wheel thats off...we'd straddle the wheel and force the bar back straight and all was good again, till we hit something else anyway! lol!

The fork sliders could be twisted in the triple tree. Mine was once after my front wheel was hit from the side.
Fork slider are NOT in the triple tree,they can't be twisted, they are attached with the axel and the fender braket:chair: it's the fork tube that could be bent or twisted and the upper triple tree and handlebars it suks for ya

Could be the fender and/or mounting brace that is bent. I would pull the front fender off and then check the front wheel to see it it is aligned with the forks and handle bars.
