replacement forks and top yoke

Post  fireblade reject on Sat Jun 09, 2012 9:44 pm

unfortunately I've had a little bump.
I've bent the left fork a little and cracked the top yoke (worse than cracked in fact).

I definitely need a new top triple clamp, so I'd like to hear any views on replacements available or am I better off looking for a salvaged set?
The forks still work fine as the bend is very high and doesn't affect the action. Is it possible to have it straightened? If not, the same as above really - like for like or an upgrade.
Thanks

CBRReject,

you're going to hate me - I bet your bottom triple is also bent!
If the top goes the bottom one goes with, not always but almost always...... sorry if the case, but you better take it out & check.
