When you had the forks apart, did you roll the uppers on a flat surface and confirm that they are straight? Try loosening one upper at a time in the triple trees, rotate it 180 degrees, tighten, and ride to check for a difference.
With the springs out, do the forks extend and compress smoothly?
With the front wheel off the floor, is there any looseness or roughness in the steering stem bearing? This is tricky..it needs very slight resistance to turning, but not too much.
Triple trees and forks aligned? Wheel true?
