Ok, so I have been real concerned on how my bike leans when on the kickstand. I know they are supposed to lean, but it got me thinking. I noticed that when I went to put the kickstand down it would push in a bit. So I took it apart and found out the metal rod that goes into the U-shaped receiver to tell if the stand is up or down, is slightly bent. I am assuming that someone was leaning on it when it was down to bend it, and that slight bend it was is giving me these problems

My question is how could I bend it back? I thought about heating it up, but then didnt want it to lose it's strength. Already tried to knock it back in, in a vice, and didn't budge at all. Any help would be great. Kind of don't want to throw down the cash fr a new one from Ducati.

I would of taken pics but I already put it back on to ride.
