I'm building a hardtailed xs650, but i discovered that my frame neck has a little bend to the right. Can i fix this myself? If so, how?

Kind regards from the Netherlands.

Is one of the downtubes bent? It's best to know what exactly is tweaked in order to fix it. Can you post a picture of it?

Heat and brute force.

The downtubes are ok. I think the backbone is twisted just behind the neck. It's not very much, maybe a few degrees.

a few degrees can be more than you'd think. if it were me, i'd throw it in a jig.
