You need a fly press or a bigish vise. Use alloy strips or blocks each side, one on bend point and one each side (say) 150-200mm away. Tighten vise until leg bends a little, release vise and see if returns to same point as you started. If yes then you need just a little more force. I stress that you want to straighen the bend by the smallest amount with each pump. Doing it on a hydraulic press with extreme caution would be even better. Take time to do job slowly.

SOURCE: vibration in handlebars/forks??
Front end vibration can be caused by front rim/tire out of balance, worn wheel bearing(s), bent front rim, or fork misalignment.
Since you recently had fork work done, I would first check the forks for proper alignment, then have the bike on a stand and spin the wheel to see if there is wobbling. To check for bearing wear, while the front is off the ground, try to rock the wheel from side to side. If you can feel or see movement, you will need new bearings.
Hope this helps

This sounds more like a lean fuel condition than ignition. If it was stored over the winter without the gas being drained or a fuel stabilizer being added, you'll likely have varnish build-up in the fuel system that is not allowing sufficient fuel flow. If your engine is fuel injected, it's likely your injector is partially clogged. If it's carbureted, your carb jets may be partially clogged or your carb float may be sticking and not allowing the needle valve to fully open. Fill the gas tank with fresh gasoline, but leave enough room for a can of Sea Foam. The Sea Foam may be able to break up the deposits and allow fuel to flow again. However, there's no guarantee and the fuel system may have to be disassembled to be cleaned.

Loosen the front fender, the axle retaining bolts, plus the upper and lower headstock bolts and nuts so that the whole assembly is free to align. Tighten the fender last. If that doesn't restore wheel alignment, you may have bent tubes that need straightening or replacement. Was the bike in a front-end wreck?

you need to check your tyre and it may also require balancing as it is a big bike.The bearing do not normally cause this but it is a good and safe thing to check it.
