Messy, but not overly complicated or finicky to put back together.
The toughest part for me was driving the top seal into the seat; for this, if you buy an extra seal or two you can stack them.
I put an extra steel spacer on the stack, and used a PVC tubing connection as a slide hammer.
An update - I went back to my home country for a vacation, and took the bent forks with me. A guy who works exclusively in the field of straightening bent steel got them both fixed for 70$. So there you go a 1030$ save.
Be sure to let us know how it rides when you get it back together.
One bad news though. I didn't bring the stem (or whatever that triangle is called), so the guy who does the straightening told me that I will probably need a new one (because it usually distorts when forks do).
So there you go, another 4 weeks waiting for another part, which I'll pay 300$ instead of 35$. But ok, I did make the most important save.
When I finally start riding again, I'm gonna find an after marked exhaust system, given that Honda's cost ~1350$.
the way I check if they're bent is that I find a very flat surface and see if the part rocks. Obviously the ideal surface is a granite surface plate at a machine shop, but adequate surfaces include granite counters in kitchens (if you can get away with it) or a piece of glass (even a mirror).
I managed to salvage a sink cutout from a granite countertop to use for this purpose.
