This weekend I lost the front end while cornering and went down and now it feels like the front end doesn't turn as easy. Bars are slightly bent and will be replaced but I'm wondering if something else is tweaked and causing the front to feel stiff. Any help is appreciated.

Check your steering bearings, also avoid over-tightening the ring nut.

it's possible that the forks are not aligned as they once were. if the bars were bent, then the forks could be slightly twisted in the fork clamps with that much of an impact. check the alignment on them
