Hi there, I am new here so excuse me if I am posting a subject that was discussed earlier.
I had an accident with my Yourban, which caused the front wheels to go off alignment.
The dealer gave a quotation of 1950$ to repair the bike stating that they have to replace the simply everything in the front end, saying that parts are bent and broken.
I took the bike from their workshop and dismantled it, inspected each and every part and found no issues whatsoever, nothing is bent, nothing is broken, nothing is out of place.
The only issue i can think of is misalignment.

I checked the alignment procedure and found there is an alignment tool which i don't have, is there any simple guide that explains how to align the front wheels, or a video maybe? currently the right side wheel is straight, while the left side wheel and handlebar aren't, and i can see that the parallelogram is not 100% aligned, attached photos shall clarify what i mean.

I highly suspect that your left side strut is bent (at a minimum).

The struts are usually the first thing to bend during a accident with these 3 wheelers. They are practically sacrificial.

Thank you for your reply, i checked it visually yesterday and found no visible damage.
I am measuring it today and will compare it with the right side along with all other parts, and will let you know.

I'd add the steering rod assembly to that list as well. Virtually guaranteed it also is no longer within factory spec.
