You are correct, fork tubes are most likely "tweaked" a bit in the triple clamps. A common occurrence in a fall. Nothing is bent. Does the 800 Tiger have rubber mounted handlebars? If so, then the bars could also be "Tweaked".

The quick and easy fix for the fork tubes is to simply tap front tire on a post or rock gently. Ride bike. Oh, you went the wrong way and now it's worse? Tap the other way. Eventually you will get it straight. Ride to verify. Nothing is bent. Tap tap tap.

The Official way to solve this is to slightly loosen all triple clamp bolts, elevate front wheel. Give the bars a sharp back and forth shake. Re-torque. Never over tighten triple clamp bolts ... you can CRUSH fork tubes.

Or sidestand switch

When mine went TU, I think I had the same symptoms (on mine a rock hit the switch plunger preventing it from moving out enough when the sidestand was up and so the bike thought it was still down and wouldn't start).

The bike wouldn't run if it thought the stand was down.

I think you're right - so, scratch sidestand switch as the culprit.

It really did work, though. No cylinders moving, no vibration.

Did you try any of the websites? I know sometimes they post the measurements. If not all together you can take each piece and get a pretty good idea. Also do a search on this thread. It is a ways back but there is a guy on here running the Trax boxes. If I remember right it looks like a school bus from the back

yep, FYI, tape off the little holes in the handlebars if you move your controls so the lead shot doesn't come out
