That Gas Tank Dent

Is there a way to fix the handlebars to prevent the dent that occurs on the left side of the bike. My tank has the dent, all of the tanks on ebay I have seen have this dent!

Most of the time you get a dent from the bars it is because the bike has been down and the bars get bent into the tank.
My bars never came close to my tank.

Check your steering stop on the neck to see if it is bent, your bars should be 3/4" away from the tank.
