Replace the headstock bearings after a fork bending wreck?

I finally got new forks and trees for the YZF and had a thought before I install them.

Should I replace the headstock bearings?

Pics of progress and my bent forks.

Yeah I'm dealing with some exhaust carnage too. That poor V&H header is beat up a bit. I'm willing to bet that front wheel is bent too.

I would. Think about the point impact shock that the rollers and races took.

I'd certainly check their condition and they are cheap to replace. That being said, I've not replaced them on a bike that even had the lower triple tree bent from an accident and there was never an issue with them five years later.
