Check to make sure your fork and triple isn't bent.

I had that on a bike one time after a minor get off. I was sure I had a fork leg bent, but after taking it all apart and inpsecting, i discovered the the upper bridge and lower tree were slighlty out of line with each other.

check your fork legs, and check your upper bridge and lower tree, if they dont appear bent, loosen the big bolt on top of the bridge. point the wheel straight, twist on the clip ons so they are in line with the tire, and then retorque the bolt.
