remove fender, airbox so you can get a good look at it. Get a long piece of steel tube or bar, 5-6'. Lay bike on its side and have a friend or two help hold it down by standing on it. Then use the bar to bend it back. May take a try or two to get it close. Put the bar way down thru the area where the air box was so it bernds the whole thing and not just the tips where the fender slides on. Ive staightened steel and alum this way.

thanks, i will have to try that when my dad gets here. i dont think it extends to the airbox, because there is a big stress mark on the plastic at the end
