Help with handle bars

Hello I'm new here and I just picked up my very first motorcycle. I picked the rebel 300. Well today my wife was learning how to ride and she dropped the bike she dented the gas tank no major damage. One issue I saw later on is the handle bars. The handle bars look crooked and are off center. could anyone tell me how to fix this?

New bars. They aren't extensive from the dealer. Mine were <$30. Shouldn't be much in labor to replace them

I actually fixed it. The bars them selves weren't bent it was off center. So I turned the handle bars real hard and it moved back to it's original position. Any idea how to get a dent out? Lol

Magic,

Depending on the size of the dent you may want to try a hail damage repair shop.

thanks. Yeah it's not a big dent. Maybe like an inch and a half in length I'll attach a picture later to show the damage

Glad the bike is mostly ok. Do yourself a favor and make sure the handlebar clamps are tight, they are hex bolts. Iím concerned if you were able to muscle them to rotate.
