So I bought my bike a while back and I'm wanting to fix it up a bit. I bought it from a guy who had a wicked wipeout. And the tail piece is bent a little bit and kicked over to one side. Does anybody know how to fix that mess?

A few pics might help you get a few suggestions...:cool:

you may be able to use a lump hammer if it is only bent slightly. The only other way really is to heat it up and bend back to original position

You'll never get it properly straight without a jig, heat and lots of time. You'll be better off replacing the rear frame. Best hope the main frame is straight!

What sort of bike is it?
Most sportsbikes have a removable rear subframe and it's usually far easier to replace it than to try to straighten one.

Ya I was hoping you could replace them. I didn't know if it would be easier to replace it or straighten it. It's an 02 954
