650Stew explained the issue (didn't watch the video).
I find it best to jack the bike up to take weight off the front end because that makes the fork clamps less critical. If the bike is sitting on the side stand and the clamps are loosened too much, the clamps can slide down on the fork tubes. Often the gaiters will resist this and not a big thing but adds to the problems.
Regardless, simply holding the front wheel straight and use the bars to pull then back to center. Torque wrench on the clamp bolts. FWIW, once in a while someone concludes that over tightening the fork clamp bolts will prevent this from happening but can strip/break the bolts and allowing the forks to rotate under high strain isn't a bad thing, IMO.HIH
