Bent Swingarm spools

Hey, does anyone know a place that can bend the tabs for the spools back into alignment. I had a little spill and the spool is bent at about 20 degrees. Thanks.

What bike? Steel or aluminum? Sure it's the spool mount and not the spool itself?

Buy new ones. They are cheap. A shop will charge just as much and the material will be scratched and most likely fatigued. (Like a paper clip you have bent. Becomes brittle.

Thanks for the replies everyone. It's a 2007 Kaw Ninja 650R. I believe the swing arm is steel. The tab is definitely bent.

On my old ZX10 they were actually sheared off.
A local machine shop welded a new piece of aluminum, and tapped it.

I think any decent shop should be able to do the same for you.

if it bent rather than sheered off and it's a kawi, i'd bet my bike it's a steel swingarm, take it to CP, I'm sure he can heat it up and bend it back.

Yeah it's steel, and nope I don't do stuff like that. I'm sure you could heat it up and bend it back though.

You don't even want to know what had to be done to win races. Engines inside hotel room type shit.

You know you stayed in some shithole places when you can pull an engine and check valve clearances in your room and not get charged a damage deposit.
