Looks like your front forks are twisted. Fully loosen front forks all 3 squeeze bolts (each), set everything straight and tighten again. And hopefully that'll be it. after such an extreme twist check that your front suspension is not damaged and compresses correctly. Don't want a tank slap.

Get a service manual. Tear it down while taking lots of detailed photos from every angle with your phone. You want to be able to refer back for cable and wire routing + tie-downs. (important on a motorcycle)

Build the front end back up using the following instructions + service manual. Ignore the part about replacing the forks. That isn't the point of this. Only replace the forks if there is evidence of damage... which there may not be.
