    Frames are cheap. Buy another and save yourself the headaches.

    So it's right (lol) and bent. If you were a stubborn SOB, it could be chained down and a cum-a-long could be use to tweak it back.

    Yes bending metal makes it weaker but anyone can choose to do so.

    However, 100$ frames are found all day long.
    Pay yourself 25$ an hour to fix it and is it worth possibly having a weak frame and a few things still outta whack?? after hour and hours and it could get ya killed.

    EDIT - With a look at that foot peg, please burn your cousin or beat him badly unless he offers to pay and PLEASE throw this frame away.

    I tried to straiten my 350x frame with a little success. Hydraulic press, some chains and a tractor were involved. Do yourself a favor and just get another frame. You will never get the bent one right.

    Nice work Jason.

    As DC mentioned, in my opinion as well, the footpeg mount is the deal breaker. See how the boss points downward too? The twisting that occurred at that point is severe, and won't be an easy or quick repair, if done correctly and with safety in mind.

    Yes, mine was just the subframe and forks. I didn't notice the peg was bent on yours.

    DC, your right, concrete trucks are good for,,,, sinking to the axle housings in your yard, and straightening 3 wheelers, and that is ALL!!!

    Thats why I said it, every damn one I order has some sort of issue and if you bury one to the axle and look at my backhoe, it will growl.....

    If you scrap that frame, I would buy the upper chain slider mounting piece, between the two downtubes on the right side.
