This is ironic because I just fixed the alignment of my 200 last night. Try putting your bike on a stand with the front tire off of the ground and then back off the triple clamp bolts and let it sit over night. If they are still off it might by the handle bars are bent or the clamps that hold on the handle bars might by twisted or warped. Another trick I learned form a mechanic is to get two boards and but them on eather side of the bikes tires and clamp them down. Make damn sure that when doing this that you tire is as straight as possible. Losen the triple clamps and take off the number plate and handle bar pad so that you can see which side is off.Slowly tap you handle bars to the oppisite directon of which they were twisted and carefully look at the triple clamps to see if it is dead on. After you have got the bars where you want them take the bike for a a spin ahd continue to look down at the clamps to see if they are off. Keep trying this untill you get them where they need to be.
