Bent handlebars! Bend back?

First of all F*CK! OK better... I loaded the bike on the trailer (it's 26 degrees here) to take to wash it, made the turn at the bottom of the driveway and thump! Right side handle bar bent down a bit.. I it's not much but it looks like it's the clamp were the handle bar attaches maybe a little of the handle bar. My question, Should I try and bend it back? 2nd, If I were to buy aftermarket handle bars do they come with the clamp that holds the handlebar? All ideas welcome....
The reason it fell is that I put the handlebar straps along the bottom of the damper and it sliped to the top of the damper causing slack... lesson learned.

It would be better to replace the handle bar than try to bend it back. Sorry to hear and hopr you get it back together soon.

Hey maybe if I drop it on the other side it will fix itself????? It will still ride but I put out a WTB to the sponsors to get a new right mid fairing. I should be happy the tank is not messed up.....
