Ill try the rod thing first, i dont have a torch. My idea was use a crescent wrench, but maybe i can avoid scratching it more then the peg is.

Aluminum doesn't love to bend, but you might be ok trying it cold.
You're guaranteed to be OK if you put a torch on it. Find any autobody shop, they'll probably do it for you on the cheap.

Or pick one up for about $25 from an autoparts store, along with some brake clean. Gets the aluminum pieces bent back right, and with the brake clean...well, nothing says fun like a 6' stream of firey goodness bringing doom to all insects or objects around.

It's billet aluminum, so nothing to worry about with not heating it. It's just more of a bitch to get perfectly straight without heat. That rearset is relatively unbent, and I've seen worse bent back just fine with no heat. It's cast aluminum you really gotta worry about.

If by mature you mean lighting **** on fire, yes.

:+1: I wasn't sure if it was billet (my bent up clutch lever was cast), and didn't want to sound like a jackass with Demented lurking around - dude knows everything!:ciao:
