new rider needing advice

Hey guys. I just got my first bike from a supposed friend of mine. 07 ninja 650r. Handle bar kind of bent and light cosmetic damage. Test ride went ok. Found out the next day he ripped me off. The left fork is bent and the triple tree set up is jacked up. I didn't know what I was doing or looking at. Does anyone know where to find the left fork for this bike and some handle bars? The front tire was bald so I fixed that first. But when I get on the highway I get real nervous about that fork. Any and all help is appreciated.

How do you know the fork its bent?
You might wanna mention what bike you have if you do need forks etc.

Sometimes when forks are tweaked and handlebars are "bent" it may just be because they were twisted during a crash. Take the farrings off and loosen the bolts and see if things set back. Just an idea before you spend money on forks etc.
