If your tie rods aren't bent then your stem is twisted. You can align the wheels by straightening the bars and loosening the jam nuts on the tierods and turn them till the wheels are straight

take the front plastics off and look at it from the side to see if you stem is bent in any direction. If not, check the handle bar clamp to see if its twisted at the top.

This is the same problem that i had. I finally found that the splines on the bottom of the streering stem were twisted. You will have to take the steering out to see if this is the problem. I have seen 2 others that were twisted also. Hope this helps!! :yfz

Turn the bars so the handlebar clamp is straight then take a peek down at the bottom of the stem. The tie-rod mount plate should be in the 6 o'clock position (if looking down at it from the top). If the bars are straight and that mount plate is not pointing straight backward than your stem is bent and you need it replaced.
