I've just realigned forks by eye-ball. If they're a little crooked, it doesn't seem to affect the handling much. I just put the bike on the centerstand and loosened the fork bolts slightly. Then from the front, I held the front tire with my legs and twisted the handlebars straight. Then I checked to see if it was straight by straddling the bike and looking at the front tire and bars. After a couple of tries, I got it to where it looked pretty good and just tightened the fork bolts up again. The handlebar caps should keep the forks in about the right place, so it shouldn't be very hard to do this.
