Are they twisted above the top clamp or is the entire top clamp twisted? Unmount the bar mount and reinstall. They are rubber mounted so they can twist. I went with solid mounts on my bike because I didnt like the play in the bars that came from the rubber mounts.

undo your bars like Bdubb said. Also very important: YOU MUST tighten the Lower Triple clamp first, then the upper. Realigning the front tire properly is not a bad idea. Google this process and watch a vid. Most people just throw it on and bolt it in.

Hey guys thanks for help. Yip whole mount is bent not just the top. I'll get some more of bolt #17 from work today and give it another go :)
